I made a delicious salad today with some fixings and lettuce from my CSA share. Lettuce, radishes, green onions. I threw half an avocado on too, but I got that from the grocery store. If you think this salad looks familiar, I will admit it was inspired by the Apella at Diesel Cafe in Davis Square. I made a simple salad dressing using 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup raspberry wine vinegar, generous teaspoon spicy mustard, spices, s&p.
I use this ratio for any type of vinegar and try to mix it up with citrus juice or juice from pickling. I use garlic most of the time, and shallot is delicious. Sweeten it up with honey or maple syrup
