I made this on Sunday, and I'm still eating it. I never thought I'd love soggy salad, but this just changed me. Now that I can tolerate salad, I can eat a bowl of this that's about a cup of it if I eat slowly. I'm glad that my loosened restriction has made me find something really healthy, quick and easy. I just added some dried rosemary, basil and marjoram my mom gave me a few days ago from her garden. The smell of rosemary on my hands is divine. She also suggested I use the sticks of rosemary for chicken kabobs. I might have to do that tonight!
This has got to be the best salad I've ever had.
Get a BIG BOWL.... HUGE
Shred one head of lettuce
peel and slice thin, 2 cucumbers
peel and slice thin, 1 large red onion
slice and dice, 4 Roma tomatoes
deseed and slice thin, 1 red pepper
drain and add 1 can of artichokes
Crack a ton of black pepper over it
Pour 1 cup of balsamic vinegar over it
Pour 1/3 cup olive oil over it
Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of Tony Chacerie's or Zatarian's Creole Seasoning
Sprinkle 2 teaspoon garlic powder
Sprinkle 1 teaspoon white pepper
fresh or dried herbs of your choice (rosemary, basil and marjoram from mom's garden)
Toss. The longer it marinates, the better it tastes. So, so good. SOOOOOO GLAD I can now tolerate salad.
