Farmers Market Salad With Balsamic Vinaigrette
Steps
1
Description

This is a salad you can make with anything you have in the fridge or find at the farmers market. Feel free to play around with the vegetables, nuts, and kind of cheese. I love to make it really colorful and include lots of crunch. Enjoy!

Get Started

In a large bowl, mix together the lettuce, arugula, carrots, scallions, cucumber, tomatoes, fennel, cabbage, and walnuts, Lightly coat with the balsamic vinaigrette. Taste. Season with sea salt and pepper. Add more dressing if necessary. Top with crumbled feta and serve immediately.

  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled

Place the vinegar, olive oil, mustard, and garlic in a food processor. Slowly pulse to combine. (Do not just let it run or it will become very thick) Season with salt and pepper and give a few final pulses. Add honey to sweeten if necessary.
