Earthy Delights Recipe

Robert's Instant Salad

Robert's Instant Salad
This wonderful recipe is adapted from one by Curtis Aikens. It requires practically no work. On a scale of one to ten, one being easy, this rates approximately minus five. On the other hand, with some fresh fruit, cheese and crackers, it makes a lovely light dinner. If you want just a little more substance, throw in some sliced avocado. It also goes very well with cold soup. This yields four servings. Don't forget the wine.

1 head frisee
1 head Boston lettuce
1 red onion, sliced

¼ cup orange juice
3 tablespoons aged Balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper

Orange slices Edible flowers


Wash and dry the lettuces well. Toss with the red onion.

Mix all dressing ingredients and drizzle over the salad.

Garnish with the orange slices and the edible flowers.
