Summertime Balsamic Salad

Balsamic vinaigrette is one of my favorite flavors. Making your own dressing is the simplest thing and tastes so much better than store bought. I whipped this up from ingredients I had available in my kitchen, I wanted something special to drizzle on my fresh summertime produce. This hearty salad can be served as a side or eaten as a meal.

Balsmaic dressing

Ingredients

  • 1 head lettuce of your choice, torn into bite size pieces (I used Romaine)
  • 1 orange bell¬†pepper, cut into slices
  • 2 persian cucumbers, sliced
  • 3 green onions, cut into small pieces
  • 2 heirloom tomatoes, cut into small pieces

Arrange produce in large bowl and toss with balsamic dressing. Serve immediately and enjoy!

      Coconut Palm sugar is a lower glycemic sugar found in most stores now. In fact, I believe there are several brands that package coconut palm sugar. It’s brown and is not as sweet as regular sugar, it has a rich flavor,and gives this dressing a nice milk sweetness. Thank you, I’m happy you have found me. Diana
