Romaine salad with a lemon vinaigrette, crumbled blue cheese, and walnuts.
Coupling Romaine's crisp and crunchy leaves with a slightly pungent blue cheese is a classic combination.
|1||Romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces||550 g|
|1/4 cup||extra virgin olive oil||65 mL|
|1||green onions/scallions, minced|
|2 tbsp||lemon juice, freshly squeezed||3/4 lemon|
|2 tsp||Dijon mustard||10 mL|
|140 g||blue cheese, crumbled|
|ground pepper to taste [optional]|
|1/2 cup||walnuts [optional]||50 g|
- Wash the romaine lettuce, then spin-dry. Tear the leaves into bite-size pieces and place them in a bowl. Mince the green onions and add them to the bowl.
- In a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice, oil, and mustard until the dressing is emulsified. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat well.
- Crumble the cheese and sprinkle it over the salad. Garnish with walnuts, if desired, and serve.

Very tasty with the veal chops! Even alone if you're looking for a light salad just remove the blue and add the dressing on it.
