Why I Love This Recipe
This is the perfect salad to serve with Italian dishes.
Ingredients You'll Need
2 heads romaine lettuce
small jar of marinated artichoke hearts
1 or 2 red peppers, roasted (or use jarred)
black olives, drained and halved
parmesan cheese, shaved
hidden valley Italian dressing mix
1/4 c. Basalmic vinegar
1/2 c. EVOO
Roast red peppers by holding over open flame of gas stove or over electric stove until black and blistered. Immediately place pepper in a plastic bag for 10 minutes. Peel peppers, seed, and slice. Tear romaine into a large bowl, top with drained artichoke hearts, peppers, black olives, and parmesan. To make vinaigrette, combine Italian dressing mix, Balsamic vinegar, and EVOO and mix well. Put dressing in a salad dressing cruet and chill until serving time. Pass dressing for salad at the table.
