Composed Salad with Apple Balsamic Vinaigrette

Ingredients

  • For the vinaigrette:
  • 1⁄4 cup Apple Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon dried basil leaves, crushed
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1⁄2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • For the platter, choose any combination:
  • Protein: pick 1 or 2, such as sliced chicken, hard-boiled egg halves, or strips of prosciutto
  • Cheese: pick 1 or 2 such as cubes of fresh mozzarella or aged Parmigiano-Reggiano, or thin rounds of goat cheese
  • Greens: pick 1 lettuce or another leafy green, like arugula or baby spinach
  • Vegetables: pick 3 or 4, raw, steamed, or grilled, such as asparagus, cherry tomatoes, and string beans
  • Fruit and nuts: pick 1 or more, such as grapes, apple or pear slices, raisins or another dried fruit, avocado, and almonds or walnuts
  • Legumes: pick 1, such as cooked beans or chickpeas

Directions

Make the vinaigrette:
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the vinegar, basil, shallot, garlic, and red pepper flakes.
Gradually whisk in the olive oil until the dressing is emulsified.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Compose your salad:
Rinse and pat dry all raw ingredients.
Cut all ingredients into bite-size pieces or thin slices.
Lettuces and other greens can be sliced into ribbons.
Choose a large platter and place one ingredient at a time, going from left to right.
Pass the vinaigrette on the side so each person can add as much or as little as they want.
