Classic Green Salad + Amazing House Dressing

I'm not joking around when I say this salad is classic. It goes with E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G, and it's easy. You can literally throw it together in about 10 minutes. Need I say more?

The dressing is a very tasty greek/house style dressing, and it's my absolute favorite. Done.

Classic Green Salad

  • 1 Bag mixed greens (I love Trader Joes Spring Mix! Or use your favorite head of lettuce rinsed and chopped)
  • 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 scallions, sliced
  • 2-3 persian cucumbers, or 1/2 english cucumber, sliced
  • 1 carrot, peeled into ribbons (run your peeler over it repeatedly to get long thin ribbon slices)
  • 1 red, yellow or orange bell pepper, or baby bells, sliced, chopped diced or however you like!
Add clean lettuce to your bowl, top with veggies and serve with dressing (recipe below). Toss before serving.

Amazing House Dressing 
(This is my revised version. See the original here.

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar 
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano 
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2-3/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon pink salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
Add all ingredients to a salad dressing karaf and shake rigorously until completely combined. You can also make this in a bowl and whisk to combine.
