…from the Perspectives’ Holiday Kitchen
How you doin’? When preparing meals for the holidays, many people think that every course has to be over-the-top special. Others think that might just be overkill. For a multi-course dinner menu like a Thanksgiving Day feast, a simple salad may be the best solution.
A Simple Salad is usually a limited combination of various ingredients that are either raw, cooked or both. The ingredients can be any vegetable, meat, fish, or fruits as a main ingredient or in combination depending on the style of salad—composed or tossed salad. If you were working in a restaurant and a guest ordered a Simple Salad. What would you serve to that guest?
A Simple Salad generally consists of one or more leafy lettuces such as Iceberg, romaine and arugula, lightly tossed in a vinaigrette dressing as a base with one or two additional ingredients like tomato and cucumber, that are used for decoration or as a garnish. The secret is rubbing the bowl with a cut garlic clove.
Prep time: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
For the salad bowl
1 garlic clove, cut in half
4 cups greens (any combination you like)
cherry tomatoes (or tomato chunks)
mixed color pepper slices
topping of your choice (croutons or nuts)
For the vinaigrette dressing
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly-cracked black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 cup canola oil
Quip of the Day: “Ran out of toilet paper and started using lettuce leaves. Today was just the tip of the iceberg, tomorrow romaines to be seen.”
