Chanelle's Salad

Salads are really just a combination of ingredients-- just throwing some vegetables or other toppings on a bed of lettuce. But some salads just work better than others. The flavors blend together, the dressing brings out the vegetables... That's what happened with this combination. I don't usually name recipes after myself, but I was so proud of how this turned out, I decided it could be my own salad namesake.

This salad came from a combination of ingredients I had on hand. Since I liked it so much, I will be sure to have these ingredients on hand in the future to have this again! For a one person serving, I used a whole avocado.


Lettuce (Green or red leaf)
Grape tomatoes
Sliced Red Onion
Feta Cheese
Optional Ingredients: chickpeas, kalamata olives


2 Tbs red wine vinegar

1/2 tsp. mustard
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp lemon juice

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Mix dressing ingredients with a whisk. Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

  1. I so love a good garden salad! I like your dressing! I make one similar I will have to try your version!

  2. Oh that sounds amazing. We just discovered arugula awhile ago, and it's one of our favorite salad greens. Just topped with shaved parmesan, dressed with a little olive oil and lemon, it's delicious! I'm definitely bookmarking this salad to try. :)
