This is our go to salad and dressing, which you can throw together while someone is setting the table. My favorite way to make this dressing (or any dressing) is to put all of the ingredients into a small jar with a lid and shake it well. Once you get the hang of it, you can switch up the vinegars, oils and spices and make it your own!
This is a great (almost) no cook meal! I throw this together if I have some leftover grilled chicken and the rest of the ingredients are pantry and produce staples. Arranging it on a platter makes it look as good as it tastes!
Every once in a while I love to have a big salad for dinner. When salad is our main dish, some of the heartier eaters in my family often ask me tongue and cheek, “so, now that we’ve had our salad, what’s for dinner?” The addition of crunchy whole grain croutons and lots of feta cubes along with the many fresh veggies makes for a hearty dinner, even for the salad skeptics. This dinner salad is inspired by a recipe from the Barefoot Contessa, with a few (healthy) tweaks.
