'All the Good Stuff' Salad

>> Thursday, December 17, 2009

This is a salad that Andrew introduced me to and we have it at least once every other week. It doesn't have any lettuce, hence the name 'all the good stuff' salad. You can easily alter this salad to fit different ethnic menues. For example, if I'm serving Mexican food, I'll add cilantro and lime juice to the dressing or if we're having Greek night, I'll add red onion, lemon juice and some crumbled feta cheese. Anyway, here's the basic recipe:

All the Good Stuff Salad
1/2 cucumber, chopped
1 small Roma tomato, chopped (or a handful of grape tomatoes, halved)
1 avocado, chopped
1 carrots, peeled and chopped
2 green onions, chopped
a handful of parsley, minced

1 T red wine vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
3 T olive oil
salt & pepper

In a small bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients and whisk together. In a large bowl, toss all other salad ingredients together. Add salad dressing and toss. If making the salad ahead of time, add the juice of half of a lemon or lime to keep the avocado from turning brown.
