We’ve been eating a lot of salads.
As usual, I planted enough lettuce to feed all of France.
As usual, I hate to see it go to waste.
So we’ve been eating a lot of salads.
If you want recipes on how to make salad dressing for a larger salad, I have several recipes for vinaigrettes here.
But this post is how to make a quick salad for one.
First, find a nice big salad bowl.
Put a dollop of Dijon-style mustard in the bottom.
Add a bit of vinegar… I used sherry wine vinegar, about a tablespoon.
Add a good olive oil, a little at a time, whisking after each addition.
I used about 1 1/2 tablespoons.
Add lettuce and toss well with 2 forks.
Then add all of your favorite salad stuff.
I added a chopped hard boiled egg, about 3oz (90gr) of tuna, a few cherry tomatoes, and a bit of Colby-type cheese. I drizzled a bit more sherry vinegar over the top and tucked in.
A healthy, filling lunch in just 5 minutes…..
Assuming the egg is already cooked and the lettuce already picked and washed. I do that in the evenings while mon mari is grilling dinner.
