Ingredients :

Dressing of onion

  • 1/2 sweet onion (about 5 ounces) 
  • 3 Tbsp apple cider or champagne vinegar
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 heaped tsp creamy Dijon mustard
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 1/2 cup oil such as grapeseed, olive, walnut

Divided vegetables and fruits

  • 5 ounces butter lettuce hearts divided
  • 1/2 cup divided ham (I used Black Forest)
  • 1/2 cup divided turkey, I love smoked turkey
  • 1/2 cup divided bacon
  • 1/2 cup divided tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup divided cucumber
  • 1/2 cup divided hard boiled eggs, about 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup divided Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup divided cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup divided celery
  • 1/2 cup divided carrots
  • 1/3 cup divided red onion

Instructions :

for the dressing

  1. Remove the peel and cut the onion in large chunks. Add to the container of a high speed blender such as a Vitamix, along with the vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper. Blend until well pureed.
  2. Scrape down the sides of the container, and then, while the machine is running, slowly drizzle in the oil through a hole in the top. The dressing will become thick and creamy.
  3. Taste to adjust any of the seasonings. Keep refrigerated until needed. Note: this recipe makes more than you’ll need for this salad, keep the leftover in the fridge and plan to use within 2 weeks.

for the salad

  1. Put the lettuce in a large salad bowl and add each of the other ingredients. If you’d like to do a composed salad you can arrange them attractively in little piles around the lettuce, otherwise just dump them all in.
  2. Lightly dress and then toss the salad. Serve more dressing on the side.

Enjoy !
