I am guessing that the title given to this salad might mean it is good enough for eating at a restaurant… I don’t know very much Italian but sounds kinda like that would fit…
I have eaten great salads at restaurants and I have eaten absolutely flavourless, boring salads at restaurants… this one is towards the great end but not the absolute best 🙂 Hey – I am being honest!
This was actually really good sprinkled with some of my Raw Parmesan – added the cheesy flavour that this Italian style salad missed 🙂
Ingredients & Method:
For the dressing:
1 large ripe tomato, cored, seeded and chopped
2 Tsp. lemon juice
1 Tsp. red wine vinegar
1 small pitted date
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 Tsp. sea salt
pinch of onion salt (or Herbamare)
1/2 Tsp. mixed herbs (I used Braggs Organic Herb Mix)
pinch of black pepper
Combine all the dressing ingredients in a blender on high-speed and blend until smooth.
For the Salad:
1 bag of mixed salad leaves
2 tomatoes, cored, seeded and diced
1 cup thinly slice salad onion
In a large bowl toss together the salad leaves, tomato, onion and dressing until well coated….
I had some for dinner then some the next 2 days for lunch dressed with some Raw Parmesan – delicious 🙂
Giving credit where credit is due…
Another great recipe from Amber!
