Fresh mozzarella and sun-dried tomatoes add an Italian flare to this vegetarian-friendly salad.Ingredients
16 oz. mozzarella ball part skim milk
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/2 cup sliced celery
2 cups chopped fresh spinach leaves
1 cup chopped Romaine lettuce
1 cup chopped fresh sweet basil
1/2 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
2 cloves minced garlic
2 oz. sun dried tomatoes, julienne cut
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 Tbs. olive oil
1/2 tsp. dry oregano
1 Tbs. grated parmesan cheese
In a large serving bowl, combine your greens, celery, tomatoes, garlic, onions and toss to mix well.
Cut your mozzarella ball into small cubes and toss with your greens.
In a separate bowl, combine your vinegar, oil, oregano and parmesan cheese. Whisk to blend.
Just before serving, pour your dressing over the salad and toss. The aroma of the basil and cheeses is just wonderful. Serve it up with some garlic bread slices and water with lime in it and you have a refreshing meal that will fill you up.
If you want to make it for your meat lover in the family, add some lean cubed ham or a little salami. You could toss in some olives too, if you fancy them.
