Sunday night, we had friends over for a Valentine’s Dinner. One brought a salad that I could not stop eating, or thinking about as the flavors were so good together. Seriously, it was SO GOOD!
Today, I tried to re-create her salad recipe, even though I was missing a few ingredients. For mine, I used:
Romaine lettuce, 4-6 cups, shredded
Zucchini, 2-3, finely diced
Granny Smith Apples, 2, cored and chopped
Walnuts, toasted 1/2 cup (My friend’s salad had cashews, which I prefer, but didn’t have, so I improvised)
(This made enough dressing for two salads. I am making another one tonight for dinner!)
1/4 cup of lemon infused olive oil
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup of Agave nectar
Dash of salt
Dash of pepper
Toss all salad ingredients together in a bowl. For the dressing,*mix all ingredients and make sure to combine completely. *If you refrigerate any extras, you will need to re-mix as the oil and vinegar will separate.
This was so good. I am so glad she brought this, as I had Granny Smith apples in my fridge, wondering what to do with them. This is my new favorite salad. And it pairs so nicely with beef. Grill a flank steak (or other cut of beef) and serve slices on top of the salad!
