A New Favorite!
We were served a tangy, delicious, chopped salad at a dinner we attended last night that was so good that I immediately jotted down all of the ingredients on a card as soon as we got home! (My thoughtful husband, noticing how much I enjoyed it, asked one of the servers what dressing was used.) I wanted to share this refreshing taste combination with you.
Chopped Romaine lettuce
Chopped Napa (purple) cabbage
Diced Granny Smith? (or sour green apple)
Crumbled Blue Cheese
Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing
Toss chopped ingredients with dressing and chill. Mound onto salad plates, sprinkle edges of plate with finely-cut parsley. Top each mound with a cherry tomato. Chill until serving time. (This is my best guess at how this delicious salad was put together.) I plan to try to re-create this salad here at home sometime soon; it would be great with "grilled whatever" for Memorial Day!
I will be at these recipe swaps today:
