I’m not the biggest fan of salad. Unless it’s a salad that’s more like a meal, like cobb salad or chicken caesar (heavy on the chicken, light on the salad). But I understand that when you are entertaining or having a heavy meal, it’s customary to throw some greenery at people . I wasn’t raised in a barn afterall. So this is my go to salad for those occasions. It’s very simple but it has tons of flavor and it’s pretty to look at. So most of the time it actually gets eaten instead of sitting forlornly on the table feeling left out.
Use: 1/2 cup craisins, zest of one orange, 1/3 cup pecans (or walnuts, or almonds. I’m not going to fight you over your favorite nut), 6 ozs. blue cheese (or, if you are one of those people who claims to hate blue cheese, feta), half a bunch of fresh spinach, half a head of red lettuce (or whatever lettuce looks good at the grocery store or farmers market). Use more greenery for more people.
