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!!!
A tangy dressing that you only need to use a tiny bit of because it's richly flavored. It's fat free and wonderful! If you must, then you can drizzle a little olive oil into your salad after tossing it with this dressing but, honestly, it doesn't need it to make a delicious salad! Also a yummy dressing for sauteed tofu and vegetables. Enjoy!
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.
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.
