Parmesan Tomato Mixed Green Salad

Thursday, April 8, 2010

This lettuce mix was the center of a deliciously simple, fresh salad.  I found it at my local Harris Teeter and was attracted to the beautiful array of colors and delicate, intricate shape of each variety of lettuce.  I have always been a fan of the more delicate lettuces, butter, bib, etc.  Well this variety really caught my attention.  Miniature, delicate, beautiful...and just waiting to be dressed up.  And so I did.

I happened to have a fresh wedge of Parmesan Reggiano and bought and DID NOT REFRIGERATE fresh cherry tomatoes just for the occasion.  The result was a stunningly colored, flavored and fresh accompaniment to our easter dinner.

Parmesan Tomato Mixed Green Salad

Here's what I used:

4 heads Artisan lettuce, rinsed and rough chopped (or 1-2 heads regular bib/butter lettuce)
1 cup fresh cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup fresh shaved Parmesan

Favorite Dressing OR Balsamic Vinegar & Good Olive Oil

Here's what I did:

This is soooo simple, and really relies on the freshness of ingredients to really pack the punch to this recipe.  I found a very festive lime-green salad bowl that I love, added the chopped lettuce, and then added the tomatoes and shaved parmesan to the top.
