Re: Salads without lettuce

I saw an article about rough chopping vegetables like red and green cabbage, onion Brussels sprouts. turnips, sweet potatoes, bell peppers 2 in long corn cobs, and whole fresh onion. Toss with olive oil and spread single layer on a bake sheet.



Bake 400 degrees 20 minutes turning once. Refrigerate if desired.

Drizzle with bsalmic vinegar and olive oil lightly.

Re: Salads without lettuce

I made this recipe last year...way too much mayo and sugar and no one would eat it. Guess I would need to tweak it but too expensive to deal with

Re: Salads without lettuce

I have switched to using greens like radicchio, kale, etc but no iceberg or leafy lettuce; they wilt too quickly and DH and I can’t eat them fast enough so it goes to waste. Best for us now are the bagged salads at Costco...the sweet kale is basically shaved Brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, etc... no lettuce, so it lasts a long time in fridge until we can finish it.

Re: Salads without lettuce

2 cups watermelon in bite-sized chunks 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes halved 2 oz goat cheese, crumbled 2 T champagne vinegar 2 T chopped fresh basil On a platter arrange watermelon, tomatoes and goat cheese. Drizzle with vinegar and top with basil. I found Heirloom cherry tomatoes of all different colors so it made a pretty platter or you could cut small Heirloom tomatoes into quarters. ** This was posted a few yrs. ago by DiAnne**
