I've been looking for more salad recipes. This one is from Sara Moulton (of Food TV Fame)! I'm excited to try it this summer!
- 1 head iceberg lettuce, cored and washed
- 1 head romaine lettuce, washed
- 12 cherry tomatoes, cut in 1/2
- 12 radishes, sliced
- 1 cucumber, peeled and sliced
- any other raw vegetables, you like
- 1⁄2 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 1 cup of your favorite salad dressing, such as ranch,1000 island or italian
- Cut iceberg lettuce head in 1/2 then in 1/2 again.
- Slice into 1/2-inch wide pieces and put in salad bowl.
- Cut off bottom (core) of romaine and slice the romaine widthwise in 1/2-inch strips.
- Place in salad bowl.
- Toss with remaining vegetables.
- Add croutons and cheese, toss again.
- When salad is well mixed, pour dressing over and toss again.
- Serve with toasted garlic French bread.
Loved, loved, loved this! I had bought a pre-packaged container of stir-fry veggies and used the raw leftovers as the other veggies. It included mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, red onion, and then I added diced tomatoes, croutons and ranch dressing. I ate tons of salad - in fact didn't finish my dinner because this was so good. :) Thanks spatchcock for a great keeper. Made for Cookbook Tag.
This was good and easy to put together. We all used dressing of our choice and enjoyed this with dinner.
I consider this to be the classic tossed salad. It's colorful and will go perfectly with any salad dressing. For the "additional vegetables" I added chopped onions. Cauliflower flowerets would also be a great add-in. I dressed the salad with my southwestern ranch dressing. It was yummy; thanx!
