Bursting with color, flavor, and texture, this salad has it all. We had the photo shoot for this on Chanukah, and the very next day I had a get-together with friends. I brought this salad along, and everyone went nuts over it. The dressing can be made a few days in advance, and you can even cut up the veggies the day before, if desired. Thanks, G.A.

Ingredients

Serves 8


Salad
  • • 1 bag shredded lettuce
  • • 1 avocado, diced
  • • 2 tomatoes, diced, or a handful of cherry tomatoes, cut up 
  • • ½ cup sliced green olives
  • • ¼ cup chopped scallions 
  • • a generous handful sunflower sprouts, or sprouts of your choice 
  • • 1 bag (5 oz/142 g) cooked chestnuts

Dressing
  • • 1 Tbsp lemon juice 
  • • ½ cup light mayonnaise 
  • • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • • ½ Tbsp sugar, or to taste
  • • ½ tsp chili powder
  • • ¼ tsp salt

Topping
  • terra Chips, taco chips, pita chips, wonton strips, or even croutons


Preparation

Place all salad ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk together all dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over salad and gently stir together until dressing is evenly distributed. Use topping of your choice. Big chips should be crushed. 

NOTE: You can alter the ingredients to suit your palate. For example, use black olives instead of green, sub chickpeas for the chestnuts, etc. Throw pomegranates into a recipe, and I’m sold! 

Try this with quinoa — it’s a great shidduch!—C N
