I believe a salad is best with a nice balance of ingredients that are cool, creamy, citrus-y and crunchy. Using the Roasted Banana Pepper Vinaigrette I posted a few weeks ago, this citrus salad covers all the bases and adds a little kick, too.
Prep this salad in advance for work or quick dinners this week using my Salad Jar formula.
Roasted Banana Pepper Vinaigrette
Sweet pea shoots (or any sweet sprouts you like)
Radish, sliced thinly (a mandoline slicer works great) into rounds or matchsticks
Cucumber, sliced thinly
Toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds)*
*Can sub or add sunflower seeds to the mix, too.
Let’s get started.
1. Toss greens with Roasted Banana Pepper Vinaigrette until leaves are covered.
Then, pile in other veggies, top with seeds and fresh-cracked pepper.
