Chopped Salad with Garlic Dressing


How can you feel guilty eating a salad!?  I don't know, but I am the queen of guilt, I loved it so much if felt naughty.  I love this salad, especially the dressing, which I've made before.  It's like smack-you-in-the-face-garlic-y, or vampire slayer garlic-y, which is awesome!  I'd recommend using great garlic here, but I didn't have any one hand, so it's not bad you regular run-of-the-mill garlic either.

David Lebovitz has the recipe, or rather the template I used for this salad.  I just love how versatile it is.  I'd suggest you take a look at his site, and also at your fridge.  Be inspired.

Chopped Salad with Garlic Dressing

Source: David Lebovtiz
Serves: two

2 cloves garlic, mashed on a microplane
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp grainy mustard
1/4 cup great olive oil

romaine
spinach
chives
cabbage
goat cheese
grated carrots
sunflower seeds
half avocado, diced

Mix together the garlic, lemon juice, salt and mustard in a small bowl.  With a fork mix in the olive oil, but don't worry about it emulsifying, you don't really want that anyways.

Toss all the ingredients of your salad with the dressing.  Feast!
