It has been so cold this winter that we haven’t even been to the dog park except for a handful of times. I really needed some Spring the other day so I found this salad recipe, tried it, loved it!
I was a little afraid of the vinaigrette but I was pleasantly surprised. it was bright and delicious and easy to make! I left out the almonds because they aren’t my favorite. Even Mr. Meat Eater ate two helpings!
Spring Salad with Parsley Vinaigrette
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tbsps sugar
2 tbsps white vinegar
1 tbsp chopped fresh Italian (flat leaf) parsley
1/2 tsp salt
dash black pepper
1/2 head Boston lettuce, torn into pieces
1/2 head red leaf lettuce, torn into pieces
1 quart fresh strawberries, cleaned and sliced
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 (11 oz) can mandarin oranges, drained
To make the vinaigrette, combine all the ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake to combine all the ingredients.
To make the salad, toss all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the vinaigrette and toss to coat all the ingredients.
