Delicious Salad

Equal parts romaine and red leaf (1 large handful per person)

Grape tomatoes (I quarter them)
Toasted Pine nuts
Dried cranberries (when they're in season, I use pomegranate seeds instead)
Feta cheese
Red onion, diced
Croutons (if there's an Herb crouton option, I use that, otherwise I try to get a plain buttered crouton, something without a lot of extra flavors, it's there for the crunch)

Vinaigrette
1/2 cup canola oil
5 tbsp seasoned rice vinegar
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Black pepper to taste (lots of pepper, I put in about a tablespoon)

I vinaigrette in a tupperware, shake it up, put it in fridge for a few hours so the flavors can combine, then pour over the salad and toss.


For 10 people: big head of romaine, 2 heads of red leaf, and a double recipe of the vinaigrette
