I love this salad! It’s great served with grilled meats, pasta, or even just on its own. It’s sort of like a jazzed up Caesar Salad, and will use your summer cherry tomatoes.
SALAD WITH CREAMY GARLIC DRESSING, CHERRY TOMATOES, AND AVOCADO
1 large head romaine lettuce
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon lime or lemon juice
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce
3 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in halves
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
2 green onions, thinly sliced
2/3 cup seasoned croutons
1. Wash lettuce, dry well, and tear into bite-sized pieces. (you will need about 3 quarts of torn greens. Chill well.
2. In a bowl, mash garlic and salt together into a paste; mix in the lime juice.
3. Add the egg and beat until foamy. Stir in the mayonnaise and Worcestershire. Cover and chill if made ahead.
4. In a large salad bowl combine the romaine, Parmesan, tomatoes, avocado, green onion, and croutons. When ready to serve, pour garlic dressing over greens and toss together until mixed. Serves 6-8.
