Day 218 – Insalata di Trattoria

Insalata di Trattoria
Insalata di Trattoria

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 🙂
