Side Salad for Holiday Shrimp Scampi

Recipe: Side Salad for Holiday Shrimp Scampi



One cup (maximum) assorted baby greens per person
1 chopped red pepper to add color


1/4 cup walnut pieces
2 Tbl mustard (Dijon, preferably)
2 Tbl red wine vinegar
1 cup olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste (Optional; just a dash will do it.)

Instructions: In your blender, grind up the walnuts, 2 tablespoons of mustard and a drizzle of the olive oil (just enough to get the blender moving). Grind until well chopped. Then, in a small stream, add the rest of the olive oil. This will make a thick dressing and more than you need to dress the 4 small salads. Save the rest to use in another salad or as a sandwich spread. Lightly dress your greens and toss.

Serving Suggestions: Put your greens on the plate and top with the red pepper bits. Grind a bit of salt and pepper on top (optional).
