Salad Day

Reposted from my main blog from 2003. Salad Day

Some of us at work are trying to be good and eat something healthy once in a while, so we came up with a plan to have one of us bring a salad once a week to share.

Today is my day, and here is my salad. It's a chopped salad, something I never heard of before coming to California, but there you have it. The inspiration for this salad is the California Citrus salad from Claim Jumper.

I really don't measure anything, but these are approximations:

-- Dressing --
2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
4-5 Tbsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 tsp dry mustard
Salt & freshly ground black pepper

-- Salad --
1/2 -1 head Lettuce
1 Avocado, chopped
1/4 Cup Walnuts, chopped
1/2-3/4 Cup Crumbled Blue Cheese
1/4 Cup Dried Cranberries
1 Granny Smith Apple, chopped
1 Cucumber, peeled & seeded, chopped
1 can Mandarin Oranges, drained
3 Green Onions, chopped

Put salad in bowl, toss. Add dressing, toss again. Share. Eat.
