Now I know I said I wouldn’t post some recipes until tomorrow for your 4th of July party but I found this one and its our Healthy Recipe of the Month at the club. So I figured I would post it today!! Its a fresh quick recipe that would be a big hit at a cookout!!
1. In a small bowl, combine the onions, water, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Let sit at room temperature for 5 minutes to allow the flavors to develop.
Add 1/2 cup of the oil to the vinegar mixture. Add additional to taste.
2. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, roasted peppers, olives, haricots verts, cucumber, and herbs. Toss with enough dressing to coat, and season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Serve any remaining dressing on the side.
Now some of these ingredients you can substitute things that you like or what you think would go good in the salad! I like snap peas, some type of soft cheese like feta or bleu cheese, pine nuts or almonds and cranberries. Those types of things would add just a little extra to the salad. Its a crunchy and juicy salad that anyone will love!
