Argentina Special Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by joanna_giselle

I tried this salad at a Greek restaurant on my summer holidays in Pelion. I don't think it's Argentinian but it really is a delicious combination of lettuce, walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes and mozzarella. I ended up eating just the salad and ignored my main course! Try it and see for yourself.

I loved this recipe, not a favorite of my daughters (but they are young). I did alter the recipe slightly. I used cherry tomatoes because I didn't have sun-dried available in our area. I also changed the walnut's to dry roasted pistachios. AWESOME RECIPE!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash the lettuce leaves individually and spin them in a salad spinner or drain for 30 minutes in a colander.
  2. Bunch them together and slice them in 1cm (1/2 inch) ribbons and place in a shallow salad bowl.
  3. Scatter the grated carrot on top followed by the cheese, walnuts and semi-dried tomatoes.
  4. Mix the dressing ingredients in a small jar and shake well.
  5. Pour over the salad and serve immediately.
  6. You can use your own dressing as this is just an approximation of the dressing used.
  7. You could also substitute other cheeses instead of the mozzarella.
