black russians,mini yellow cherries,and yellow pears(if you dont have your own tomato garden go ahead and buy 2 large heirlooms for this)
one thinly sliced romaine heart
8 ounces of whole wheat penne(cooled) after i cook them i toss in olive oil and a little salt and pepper
1 can of cannellini beans drained because i was too hot and lazy to cook them from scratch
1/4 cup toasted pinenuts
15 large basil leaves(rolled and thinly sliced)
1/8 cup of chopped up mint and parsley
I like my food herby so if this is too much for you then use less
I make a large batch because i use it for all sorts of other things.... like i mix it in rice or marinate some meat with it.... sometimes we dip our bread into it....whatever you think it might be good with....
6 limes juiced and zested(because i have a lime tree....you could use lemons but 2 not six....and i love things tangy)
4 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1 tbsp of finely chopped red onion
1 tsp of salt and pepper
half a cup olive oil
you can also add herbs if you would like.... fresh would be best
I put these ingredients in jar with a lid and shake like a wild woman
Add your salad ingredients in a bowl.... lightly toss and then add half or less of the dressing depending on how you like it....toss again in the dressing and eat up my friends....ENJOY!
