baby spring mix salad

21Jul08

baby greens, herbs, ricotta slalad

so this is one of my favorites since it’s very easy to make and pretty light. definitely not vegan with the ricotta but that’s the yummiest part.

ingredients:
baby spring mix (you can buy the prepackage stuff)
if you want to make your own: baby spinach, baby arugula (rocket), & baby romaine should do
1 hand full of semi-dried tomatoes, diced up
1/4 of a red onion, sliced thin and broken up
2-3 tablespoons of light ricotta cheese
extra virgin olive oil
balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper

step 1: the base
mix the leaves, sliced onions, and semi dried tomatoes together

step 2: the dressing
slowly whisk in some extra virgin olive oil into some balsamic vinegar. about 2-3 tablespoons of each should do. i generally eyeball the oil parts.

step 3: the finish
mix in the dressing with the leaves, onions and tomatoes. i like to mix it all together with my hands to make sure the small parts aren’t left on the bottom of the bowl. top the salad with dollops of ricotta. i like to drizzle some balsamic vinegar on top of the cheese parts. add a sprinkle of salt and fresh ground pepper.

enjoy!
