Plan ahead the dressing needs a few hours chilling time before serving, you may want to adjust some ingredients after you make this, I would suggest to start with the stated amounts and add in more after mixing, you may use 3 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese in place of the feta cheese --- if you are not a lover of garlic then I suggest to pass this by! --- servings are only esitmated.
This is from one of our favorite Japanese restaurants. It's different but is the perfect combination with a Japanese style meal when the flavors all meld together. We serve with recipe #234170 and it all blends perfectly on the plate.
Ok -- since I'm always harping on you to buy that bag of salad, I thought I'd take you back to the basics with a garden salad. Now I know you're probably saying, "I don't need a recipe to tell me how to hack up a head of lettuce." You're right; you don't! But you just HAVE to try out that hacked up iceberg with a dressing you make from scratch. It's so much better than the bottled stuff and healthier too because you know EXACTLY what's in it! So today instead of a bag of salad, hack a leafy head. Trust me--tearing it apart is GREAT therapy after a hard day's
work. Throw in some sliced cucumbers and radishes, and chopped scallions. Add some shredded carrots for color. Then stir up the dressing. This is VERY tasty! The only note I'll add is something Mom taught me years ago -- never ever ever cut lettuce with a metal utensil. It will make the leaves turn brown very quickly. Always chop lettuce with a plastic or plastic-like utensil or tear it up by hand.
I have been trying to find this recipe on the foodnetwork site for a while, and finally found it! The prosciutto comes out so nice and crispy, making for a super light salad with a nice salty crunch. Who can resist?! I use it as a side salad, since it is so simple.
The dressing is what makes this salad! You don't have to adhere to the list of salad ingredients: put in whatever strikes your fancy. I usually grill up extra chicken breasts when we're having grilled chicken and use them to make up the salad for the next day.
You find this type of salad dressing in many Japanese restaurants in the U.S. I used to see people requesting something similar often, so I created this around mid to late 90's. If this dressing is too tart for your taste (it will water down with salad greens) add 1-2 T water to the dressing.
I just saw this recipe on her show, and had to try it out! It is delicious, refreshing, and brightens up any salad. Simple ingredients that you always have on hand. No need to buy premade bottled dressing when you can make it for cheap at home, and tastes much better!!!
Saw this on Everyday Italian and went out and got the ingredients right away because i saw it and was craving it. My boyfriend loves this too, he ate almost the whole batch of salad by himself. This recipe makes ALOT of dressing so you can probably use just half of what the recipe calls for or save the dressing to use on another batch of salad.
This is the best dressing ever. My mom got the recipe somewhere, and then adjusted it a bit, so she gets credit for it. Quick and delicious. The better quality the vinegars the better the dressing. I like to use a latte frother to mix the dressing. If you use the garlic make sure it is very fresh or it gets a little bitter in the dressing, it is optional. Enjoy!!
This is from Taste of Home magazine and after discovering it, I've never bought Caesar dressing again. I love it that there's no quickly perishable ingredients and it's all stuff pretty much everyone has on hand at any given time.
