What is Fresh Fare Friday? By the end of the week, I’m usually craving something light, a little on the healthier side, and easy to prepare. I’ll try to pick out my favorite recipes, featuring fewer ingredients, fresh from the market. Not strictly vegetarian, but leaning that way.
Oh, and enjoy!
For the Salad
1 head of romaine, chopped
1 small jar of pitted Kalamata olives
3 roma tomatoes, sliced
1/2 green pepper, sliced
1/2 onion, sliced
1/2 cup sweet and hot salad pepper rings
1/2 cup shredded Italian blend cheese
For the Dressing
a bunch of fresh basil
a bunch of fresh Italian parsley
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
salt and pepper
1. Add basil, parsley, vinegar and shallot to food processor for dressing. Pulse until blended. Then turn on processor and stream in olive oil. Add salt and pepper and set dressing aside.
2. Add all ingredients for salad to a large bowl. Top with dressing.
