easy weekday salad
3 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. whole grain mustard
1/8 tsp Kosher salt
fresh ground pepper
Lettuce: Boston lettuce or mixed baby greens work well
1 carrot, shaved using a vegetable peeler
1/4 red onion, very thinly sliced or grate using the largest setting on a box grater
1/4 cup soft cheese, goat or blue work well
1/4 cup nuts, walnuts or almonds work well
anything else in your fridge you need to get rid of! (we've tried corn, blanched green beans, green onions, and beets before- yum!)
1. Whisk together the olive oil and the vinegar. Add the mustard, salt, and pepper and whisk vigorously until emulsified.
2. Add the carrot, onion, nuts, etc. and combine with dressing. At the last minute, mix the greens in.
