Red Salad

Slowly but surely, I'm building up a repertoire of salads that I actually enjoy (Shocking - I know!). Near the top of the list is this one that I call the Red Salad. Don't let that put you off, they're all good things! Super simple, I won't list quantities because it's totally up to you.

Red Leaf Lettuce
Red Grapes, cut in half if large
Red Onion (thinly sliced and soaked in cold water to wash away a bit of it's pungency)
Balsamic Dressing
Toasted Walnuts or Pecans, optional
Crumbled Blue Cheese or Goat Cheese, optional but you should really do it, it's what makes the salad! ("but it's weeeiirddd it's bluuueeeee" oh stop being such a wimp. It's just cheese, it's not like it's monkey brains!)

Toss and enjoy with a glass of wine for a light dinner, or with some chicken and potatoes as part of a fantastic feast!

Heehee - these looked like an octopus

  1. Yum! Monkey brains! Hey, what about the gunita salad which is just a BBQ chicken club sandwich without the bread???
