It’s salad season!! Italian Chopped Salad inspired by theharvestkitchn . (She’s got great salads on her website.) I basically threw in what I had…romaine lettuce, radicchio, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, chickpeas, salami, Parmesan, red onion, peperoncini, mozzerella and artichoke hearts. Her dressing is the magic. 👩🏻🍳. ITALIAN SALAD DRESSING RECIPE
This Italian vinaigrette seriously rivals any Italian restaurant vinaigrette there is!
2-1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1-1/2 tablespoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, plus more to taste
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-1/2 tablespoons minced kalamata olives
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
1-1/2 cups good extra-virgin olive oil
HOW TO MAKE ITALIAN SALAD DRESSING
This Italian vinaigrette recipe comes together in about 5 minutes, but it’s best if chilled in the refrigerator for an hour or two before serving. Combine the vinegar, oregano, lemon juice, garlic, kalamata olives, Parmesan cheese, and pepper in a medium bowl and whisk to combine the ingredients.
Set aside for 5 minutes to marinate the oregano and basil.
Add the olive oil in a slow thin stream, whisking constantly to combine. You can also add all the ingredients to a glass jar with a lid and shake to combine. .
