Every Night Salad

Recipe by Christine Flynn from A Generous Meal

Note from Heidi:

When I was growing up, my mom would make a salad with every meal, even when we ordered in pizza for the night. I now do the same with my family and we love an easy, delicious salad that packs a lot of fresh favours. We started growing our veggies and herbs and that makes the salads even more delicious.

Wine pairing: Chardonnay Unoaked & Original hard cider or Cherry Rose hard Cider

Ingredients

  • ½ small white onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ head of iceberg lettuce, chopped
  • ½ seedless cucumber, chopped
  • 2 vine-ripened tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup (250 ml) loosely packed soft herbs such as mint , dill & parsley, roughly chopped
  • Salt & cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Tarter Sauce (check out the recipe in our Turkey Two Ways recipe)
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • Small handfuls of edible flowers, such as pansies or nasturtiums (optional, but very pretty)

Tip: Allowing raw onions to sit in cold water for even a few minutes will help remove some of the sting.

Instructions

Place the onions in a small bowl of ice water and let stand for about 5 minutes.

In a large salad bowl, place the lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes & herbs. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Gently toss to combine

In a small bowl, whisk together the tartar sauce and vinegar. Remove the onions from the ice water and add them to the salad along with the dressing. Gently toss the salad again, until the lettuce is evenly coated with dressing. Season with more pepper to taste. Garnish with edible flowers (if using). Serve immediately.
