Mixed Lettuce Salad with Strawberries

Post  pattipan on 5/24/2011, 10:18 pm

I usually serve this salad combo with craisins (dried cranberries), but it is even better with fresh strawberries!

Mixed Lettuce Salad with Strawberries

Make a salad with:
Mixed lettuces from your SFG
Fresh strawberries, sliced
Sweet onion, sliced (e.g. Vidalia)
Grilled or roasted chicken breast, cut up
Toasted chopped walnuts (see below**)

Serve w/ Apple Cider Vinaigrette:
2 Tbsp apple juice concentrate, un-thawed
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/8 tsp kosher salt
Dash of fresh ground black pepper
Pinch or two of ground allspice or cinnamon
1 tsp sugar or mild honey
2 Tbsp canola oil
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Combine the vinaigrette ingredients and whisk (or shake in jar) until sugar is dissolved and dressing is slightly emulsified. Refrigerate until ready to use. Makes enough dressing for 4 smaller salads or 2 meal-size salads.

**To toast walnuts: Place in single layer on baking sheet and toast in 350° F oven for about 5 minutes or until walnuts are fragrant. You can also toast them in a dry skillet over low heat for about 6-7 minutes.

I posted this pic in another thread, but I like recipes with photos! This is the salad before the chicken and dressing were added.

I do not get home grown tomatoes while the lettuce is still sweet in the PNW. I regularly use strawberries (and walnuts) in my spring salads. YUM (even without the chicken) I like to keep the dressing simple to highlight the sweet nutty flavor of fresh greens.
