I love a good salad.
The worst thing you can do to a salad is put store bought dressing on it. Seriously don’t do it. Once you’ve made and tried your own, the store bought dressing doesn’t even taste like how it’s suppose to. You’ll notice a difference–trust me.
Zesty Herb Dressing
1/4 cup of milk
1 cup of mayonnaise (I prefer the Trader Joe’s kind)
1 TBSP lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 TBSP lemon zest
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 clove of garlic, minced finely
1/2 TBSP fresh oregano, finely chopped
1 tsp fresh tarragon, finely chopped
1 TBSP fresh chives, finely sliced
2 TBSP fresh parsley, finely chopped
Whisk all ingredients together and place in a glass container–a mason jar works just as well as a salad dressing container. Store in refrigerator for a couple hours. Will keep for around 3-4 days.
For the Salad Itself
I used a mixed of romaine and red leaf lettuce with the following toppings:
Hardboiled egg, sliced
Green onions, sliced
There are limitless things you can add to this salad however! Also try:
Italian meats, salami, prosciutto, etc
