Salad with Mayonnaise and Balsamic Vinegar Dressing

Tesco is like, my family's favourite hangout. Now that they've open another Tesco (Extra) in the little small town of SP, they lagi suka go.


Salad's great for a simple meal

During one of these excursion, I saw some salad-greens that were marked down. Mainly cuz they look wilted and not so appetizing. A good dip in cold water would easily fix that! Bought two types for less than RM2...and it was enough to last my whole family 2 meals (okay, they're not exactly salad-eaters).

Here's a simple recipe for salad dressing

Salad with Mayonnaise and Balsamic Vinegar Dressing




Ingredients:
Salad leaves of your choice (enough for 3-4 serving)
2 tbsp mayonnaise
3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp yellow mustard
1 hard boiled egg, mashed
1 clove of garlic, puréed/grated
1 small onion, diced finely
dash of black pepper
dash of Italian herbs (or any other herbs, optional)


Method:
  1. Soak salad leaves in cold water until leaves are firm. Rinse and dry the leaves as much as possible.
  2. Mix all the dressing ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Put the salad leaves in a large mixing bowl. Pour dressing over salad and toss evenly.
Note: Serves 3-4. Half the dressing recipe if you're preparing less. Add croutons if preferable.

    This is a healthy salad. This will taste good with a lot of other dressings too:D Try using the Japanese Mayonnaise if you prefer a little zing:D
