end of summer chopped salad...

 
{end of summer chopped salad}


1 large head of crunchy romaine lettuce, rinsed and chopped
1 cup strawberries, chopped
2 avocados, chopped
6-8 oz. Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
1 cup walnuts
1 cup cooked chicken, chopped
1 cup cooked bacon, chopped
1 cup apples, chopped
1 cup red onion, chopped
1 cup grapes, halved
1 cup oranges, chopped

For the dressing:
 
2 ripe lemons
4 cloves of garlic, crushed
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/8 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
Fine sea salt, to taste

 
 

Arrange each of the chopped salad ingredients in separate bowls. For the dressing, squeeze the lemons directly into a mixing bowl to allow any pulp to come out. Whisk with the garlic, olive oil, red wine vinegar, honey, mustard and a pinch of salt. Taste, and add more salt as needed. If the dressing is too tangy for your taste, add more honey. Toss the salads when ready to eat. Enjoy! 

 
{Serves 4+}
