The Salad
5 mins (prep 5)
11 ingredients
6-8 servings
Although the ingredients sound unprepossessing; it is technique that makes this THE Salad. Be sure to pay attention to details to bring this to Olympian heights. Quantities give here assume that the salad is a major part of the meal, as in hearty bread-soup-salad dinner. If the meal has more courses, scale portion sizes down accordingly. THE Salad is at its height only very briefly, and after the moment has passed, it’s passed and nothing in the world can bring it back…. Everyone should be sitting down and ready to eat before you start tossing THE Salad. And get the salad plates out of the freezer only as the salad is completed. This recipe is more of a technique with some fabulous secrets I learned from The Dairy Hollow House Cookbook. I never thought I would use a recipe to make a simple green salad….but I am so glad I did. I hope you are too! Enjoy!
