So, it’s still hot outside. Looking for something light but still filling with lots of textures and flavors? Toss this together tonight for a bright, hearty, tasty meal:
Dole Spring Lettuce Mix (or your favorite bag of salad)
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
8 oz cubed summer sausage or ham (optional)
½ cup sliced almonds
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Juice of ½ lemon (2-3 tablespoons)
6 tablespoons olive oil
Italian spices (basil, garlic, oregano, etc.)
Salt and pepper to taste
Layer salad ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Pour dressing over salad and toss just before serving.
For dessert, have a scoop of your favorite ice cream or sorbet. My favorite is Haagen-Daaz’s creamy mango sorbet. Cheers!
