This salad makes me think of warm summer evenings where we sit outside on the patio until the all the tealights in jars have flickered out. It’s a meal in a bowl and no cooking required. A trip to the deli counter at the regular grocery store, (no fancy ingredients here) and throw together the vinaigrette and you’re done!
For the Dressing:
At this point everything can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator and when you are ready to eat, just start with the lettuce in a large bowl and toss everything together with the dressing.
I find it’s a good idea to use separate bowls to toss for each serving. This ensures that every serving has the same amount of each item. Start with the lettuce in each bowl and then begin to layer in the other ingredients. Pour just the amount of dressing for each serving and toss. Serve on chilled plates.
