Instructions

  1. You can make this salad based on your tastes but we’ve recommended ways to build it from the most basic ingredients to a salad you could enjoy for a full meal. You can add the salad dressing at whichever point you decide you’re done adding ingredients.
  2. The first layer is the simplest of green salads with mixed greens and/or romaine lettuce, thinly sliced red onion (soaked in water to give it a more mellow flavour), thinly sliced radishes and dressing.
  3. Next if you want to add more crunchy and creamy elements, add any of the following: sliced avocado, halved baby tomatoes, olives, crumbled or chopped feta cheese, julienned carrots or parmesan cheese.
  4. Finally, add a protein component like crispy chickpeas (baked in the oven at 400 for about 20-25 minutes) or a baked or barbecued chicken breast.
  5. The salad dressing is very versatile and can be enjoyed no matter how you create your summer green salad!

TIPS

Make this salad your own by starting with the basic ingredients and then adding a few crunchy and creamy elements of your choice.
