This is a salad that I put together rather quickly one day when a friend stopped by for lunch. I used what I had on hand. Feel free to use what you have in your fridge. Be creative. Here is what I did.
3 cups lettuce, chopped
½ cup garbanzo beans
½ cup carrots, grated
2 hard boiled eggs, sliced
4 radishes, sliced
½ cup cucumber, diced
8 cherry tomatoes
½ cup celery, diced
1 avocado, diced
1 large potato, cooked and diced
¼ cup parsley, chopped
¼ cup toasted sunflower seeds.
1 tsp. Dijon Mustard
1 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
On a large platter, toss the parsley with the lettuce. Place each of the ingredients on top of the lettuce to create a composed salad. I like to separate the colors like I did on this salad. Notice the carrots are on the opposite side of the tomatoes and radishes, then I filled in with the cucumber, celery,eggs and garbanzo beans. I put the avocado and the potato on top. Be creative, every time I make this salad, it comes out a little different.
Dressing: Using a small bowl, mix the mustard with the vinegar. Using a wire whisk,
drizzle in the oil and stir until you have a nice thick sauce.
I served the dressing on the side.
