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)
Sliced Red Onion
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.
