This is a great salad has a wonderful combination of ingredients in it. We would go to Grady’s every week to get this salad and the grilled salmon oh goodness was so good. But, they got bought out by a big chain restaurant. Don’t just hate that…I do? They did not have the level of service or food quality that Grady’s had and they did not make it oh boo hoo. We still talk about how great Grady’s was and wish they could have withstood the test of time. This is a great salad for grilled fish or a nice steak. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do at our house. I do make my own croutons and this does make a huge difference. I cut up sour dough bread toss it in a little olive oil and place in a 350 oven for 15 minutes, let cool and store until ready to use.
chopped crispy cooked bacon
chopped green onion
toasted sliced almonds
grated cheddar cheese
Dressing ~ vinaigrette or honey mustard
1/4 cup of white balsamic vinegar ~ Trader Joes
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
4 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoon fresh mince garlic
2 tablespoons minced shallots
1 teaspoon fresh chopped chives
3/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
I make this dressing in the food processor. I start the machine running and then add the whole peeled garlic cloves while it is running this minces it up so beautifully and is so, so easy. Then while still running throw in the peeled shallots and wal la all minced perfectly. Stop the machine and then add the vinegar, mustard, honey and chives to the processor bowl and process until nice and creamy! Then add the olive oil in a small stream until all is incorporated to the dressing. Wonderful! This will keep for a week or two in the refrigerator.
Honey Mustard Dressing
5 tablespoon local honey
3 tablespoons dijon mustard
2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper
I make this in the food processor place the honey, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper and start running and add my oil in a slow steady stream until it is emulsified. I will add a shallot if I have it available.
