Summer salad (gf, soy free)
Updated: Sep 11, 2020
Happy September, friends! I come to you today with a delicious summer salad recipe from my husband! Jordan and I love to cook together- he's usually the one who likes to adhere to a recipe but he said he had a "moment of inspiration" and this salad came to fruition. 😉The salad is simple but SO GOOD! I am betting you have a lot of these ingredients close by. The only ingredient that may be new to you is mimolette cheese. As I wrote in the recipe it's completely fine to exclude, it just adds a really unique/nutty flavor.
~6 cups mixed greens
1 peach, sliced thin
1 avocado, diced
~1/4 cup of mimolette* shredded
~6 dollops of 1/2 tsp ricotta
1/4 red onion, diced
1.5 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp dried onion flakes
1/8 tsp garlic granules
dash of red pepper, black pepper, and salt
*Mimolette is what I would consider fancy cheese! ;) It has a unique, nutty flavor and texture. The salad will still be great without it, but if you're able, I highly recommend trying it! You will find it at the cheese counter.
-Add the mixed greens as your base, and sprinkle on your toppings of peaches, avocado, red onion, and cheeses (disperse the ricotta in small dollops over the salad).
-Mix your dressing together, pour over, voila.
