Preparation


  • Combine the salad ingredients in mix in a bowl.
  • Whisk vinaigrette ingredients in a bowl or put in an airtight jar and shake vigorously. Pour over salad and mix. 
  • If you wish to prepare it in a glass jar for use at a later time , just pour the dressing at the bottom of a 1L  Mason jar.  I always use a jar that is slightly bigger than my salad so that I can mix it easily. When taking it to go, you can bring a melamine plate or a long dessert/ice cream spoon so you can reach the bottom of the jar.

Tips

If dressing is refrigerated, the oil will solidify.  Leave it out on the counter for a few minutes before adding to salad. 

To perk up your salad, add a few drops of vinaigrette to your salad before serving.

Try adding leftover shredded cooked chicken to your salad in the place of tuna.  This is a good way to reduce food waste.
