Cooking with Dora, Diego and my own little Naked Chef. At first glance this might seem rather, uh, unsanitary but we’re on our 3rd round of potty-training and this is what’s working so I’m cool with it.
This week Sam picked this “Silly Face Salad” to make for Jake’s birthday dinner.
1/4 cup orange juice
1 green onion, sliced (white portion only)
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 carrots, peeled
2 cups shredded lettuce or whole lettuce leaves
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved or thin wedges of tomato
1/4 cup green or black olives, halved
Fresh herb sprigs such as dill, parsley or basil
1. For dressing combine in a blender: orange juice, green onion, lemon juice and mustard. Blend until onion is minced. With blender running on low speed, slowly add olive oil. Transfer to a small container; set aside until ready to serve.
2. Cut carrots into small bite-size slices and/or use a peeler to create thin carrot ribbons. On 4 salad plates, place lettuce leaves and use carrots and other vegetables and herbs to make silly faces.
3. When ready to serve, drizzle with dressing.
Makes 4 servings.
