Mr. Delish’s Favorite Salad

11 Aug

I know, right? A guy has a favorite salad AND will openly admit it?

He’s a diamond in the rough, really.

Mr. Delish is completely open to eating a salad for dinner. I mean, not everyday, but a salad for dinner once a week, he can handle that.

We both like salads like this, that have lots of goodies in them. This little number has toasted pecans, dried cranberries, red onion, GOAT CHEESE and a lovely homemade rasperry vinaigrette. You can also add chicken, steak, or shrimp if you really want to make it a meal.

Mr. Delish’s Favorite Salad:
Makes 4 side salad size servings or two main dish servings

2 tbsp Seedless Raspberry Jelly
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/2 cup Red Wine Vinegar
Salt and Pepper to Taste
6 cups Mixed Greens (washed and dried)
3/4 cup Toasted Pecan Halves
1 small log Soft Goat Cheese (about 4oz)
3/4 cup Dried Cranberries
1/2 Red Onion, Sliced

In a mason jar with a lid, add the raspberry jelly, olive oil, vinegar and season to taste with salt and pepper. Make sure the lid is on tightly and shake until combined. This will take about 3-4 minutes of shaking to get the jelly to disperse and combine with the rest of the ingredients.

Add the greens to a large salad bowl. Top with the pecans, goat cheese, dried cranberries, red onion slices and dress with the vinaigrette.
