• Rose-Garnished Mixed-Greens Salad

    • email print
  • 4 cups or generous handfuls mixed salad greens
    3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    2 roses, of different colors
    1/2 cup feta cheese (optional)
    Handful of sprouts or microgreens, washed (optional)
    Chopped walnuts, for garnish (optional)
    2 chopped green onions (optional)
    Wash and dry the greens; place in a large salad bowl.
    In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar and sea salt. Pour dressing over greens and toss well.
    Pick off about 8 petals from each rose. Stack them on top of each other and roll up tightly like a cigar. Cut into 1/8-inch strips using a sharp knife.
    Sprinkle sliced rose petals over salad with any of the optional ingredients just before serving.
    Makes 4 servings.
