Inspired from a terrific West Village restaurant we frequented over the years, our tasty Greenmarket Salad makes it a breeze to eat clean while  hitting all the right flavor notes!

Prepared in 10 minutes or less.

For the Salad:

  • 2 cups arugula, tough stems removed
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1 small head tender radicchio, leaves slivered
  • 2 cups Boston lettuce, ribs removed
  • 2 cups maiche or lamb’s lettuce
  • 1½ cups fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Salt and fresh black pepper to taste

For the Sherry Vinaigrette Dressing:

  • 6 Tbs sherry vinegar
  • 3 Tbs acacia honey
  • 1½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • ¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil

Make sure all lettuces are rinsed very well, all sand or grit is removed, drained and patted dry.  In a large bowl, place the greens and season with salt and fresh black pepper.

In a small bowl, whisk together sherry vinegar, honey, mustard, salt and pepper.

Next, while continuing to whisk, drizzle in the extra-virgin olive oil.  Whisk until dressing is slightly thickened.  Makes 1 cup and can be stored in the refrigerator in a covered container.  Add room temperature dressing and toss lightly just before serving.  Serves 4.

*Sherry vinegar with its luxurious fragrance compliments vegetables, pork dishes and game birds.
