Ingredients

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
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.1 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
140 g blue cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup walnuts [optional] 50 g

Method

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
