Having a simple green go-to salad recipe is crucial for any cook because you can use it as a side salad for any meal or make it a main dish by adding some protein, grains or seeds. For this particular dish, we used some green mixed greens and a little bit of radicchio (radish) for the crunch and color, but feel free to use any green that you have on hand.
1 1/2 tsp whole grain mustard
4 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup Olivo Amigo olive oil
1 tsp honey
Salt and black pepper to taste
For the salad:3 cups mixed greens
1 radicchio, cut into pieces
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together all the ingredients except the olive oil.
While whisking, slowly drizzle the olive oil until it is completely emulsified.
Place the greens and radicchio leaves in a serving bowl and toss with enough of the dressing.
Reserve the remaining dressing for all future salads.
We think that either olive oil would be an excellent addition to your salad. For extra flavor and a hint of spice, we would recommend Joy for your salad. To play off off the green earthy flavors, use Vitality to compliment and add depth to the mixed greens and radish that is already in your bowl!
