PARTY PLATTER HOUSE SALAD
PARTY PLATTER HOUSE SALAD – House Salad with zesty apple cider vinaigrette is a crisp, fresh and healthy side salad that can double as a hearty main salad perfect for lunch or dinner!
Here is everything you will need:
In this house salad recipe, romaine, carrots, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion and crunchy croutons are dressed with a simple and delicious apple cider vinaigrette for an easy, everyday side salad.
— Leafy greens – I used romaine, but you can switch it up with butter lettuce, iceberg, spring mix, or baby spinach.
— Carrots – use pre-shredded for ease, or quarter baby carrots for quick matchsticks.
— Cucumber – thinly sliced, cut slices in half or quarter them for smaller pieces.
— Tomatoes – slice in half, or if using larger tomatoes, cut into wedges or quarters.
— Red onion – shallots would be great too.
— Croutons – seek out vegan croutons (I used Simply Organic brand that contains no dairy).
— Dressing – the dressing is a simple mix of apple cider vinegar, olive oil, Dijon, garlic, salt + pepper.
Make the vinaigrette by whisking together the apple cider vinegar, olive oil, garlic, Dijon, and salt and pepper in a small bowl or glass container.
Chop and slice the romaine, cucumbers, tomatoes and whatever else needs prepping.
