A restaurant-worthy mixed green salad that you can make at home, any night of the week! You'll love the combination of crisp lettuce, salted, toasted almonds, tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, red onion and Parmesan cheese in a quick and zippy homemade red wine vinaigrette dressing. Serve the salad as a side dish with grilled salmon, pizza, steak, or a classic lasagna. Alternatively, turn the salad into an entrée by topping it with meat or seafood and pairing it with a side of crusty baguette. It's fresh, delicious and full of flavor!

For the Salad:
10 oz mixed baby greens
1 pint halved grape tomatoes
2 ribs celery
1 seedless English cucumber
1/2 red onion
1/4 c slivered almonds
1/4 c freshly grated Parmesan cheese
kosher salt and pepper
For the Dressing:
1/4 c red wine vinegar
1 T honey
1 1/2 t minced garlic
1/4 t kosher salt
1/4 t pepper
1/2 c olive oil

  • Toast the almonds until deep golden brown, then sprinkle with kosher salt while they're still warm. I do this in the microwave by placing the almonds on a microwave-safe plate. Cook on high power...
