Janie's Yummy Salad


This recipe is from Janie Salvadalena...I usually triple the dressing and "salad nuts" to keep on hand so we can make this easily...(hide the nuts in the freezer since they are hard to resist)

Salad nuts:
Saute for about 10 minutes until caramelized:
  • 1 C coarsely chopped walnuts (almonds or pecans)
  • 1/2 cube butter
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
Pour out on a piece of foil to cool.

Dressing:
  • 1/3 C red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 C oil (olive or corn)
  • 3/4 C sugar (or Splenda)
  • 1 t dijon mustard
  • 3 T dry minced onions
  • poppy seeds...I never add these, but you could
Buy a bag of "European Salad Greens" or any nice mixture of tender lettuces, endive, etc.
Pour in salad bowl and toss with nuts and dressing.
I usually add about 1 basket of frozen raspberries...you could also try strawberries or pear slices and feta or blue cheese. Serve right away...it doesn't store well.
