This delicious salad is super easy to make and is a go-to on nights when I’m feeling too lazy to cook. All of the ingredients can be found at your standard grocery store, making this the ideal salad for late fall, winter, and early spring months when good, local produce is scarce.

Ingredients:

Salad –

-Red leaf romaine lettuce
-Cherry tomatoes, sliced
-Avocado, diced into cubes
-Red onion, chopped
-Walnuts
-Feta cheese

Dressing –

-1/3 cup olive oil
-3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
-juice of one lemon
-dash of a hot sauce of your choosing
-1 tablespoon yellow mustard
-1 teaspoon crushed rosemary
– 1 teaspoon crushed thyme
Directions:

Wash and dry the lettuce. Then chop into pieces and divide between two plates. Top with tomatoes,onions, avocado, and walnuts. Crumble feta over top.

In a jar combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, hot sauce, herbs and mustard. Shake well. Drizzle over salad. If desired, grind salt and pepper over each salad to taste.
