Lettuce Salad with Maple and Mulberry Dressing

Posted Dec 20 2010 12:00am
You know I just had to try my maple syrup I bought yesterday! :)
Lettuce is such a delicious and easy to work with vegetable. You have to be a moron to totally wreck a recipe containing lettuce. And for some strange reason, I surmised that maple and miso would be a good combination. Don't laugh -I Googled it and yes, there are recipes combining those exact same ingredients. But lettuce is sweet - I didnt want to ruin it with miso's inherent saltiness. So, the miso+maple combo will have to wait. Maybe with the mung bean sprouts, sometime later this week. For now, let's just combine the sweet of the lettuce with the sweetness of my mulberries:

Lettuce Salad with Maple and Mulberry Dressing
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups of iceberg lettuce
  • 1.5 cups of spinach
  • 1/2 a green pepper
  • 1/2 a pomogranate
  • Handful of mint
  • About 10-15 mulberries
Dressing
  • 5 mulberries
  • 3 Teaspoons of maple syrup
  • Dash of olive oil
To make:Clean and chop the spinach, lettuce, pepper and mint. Add the pomogranate and mulberries.
Crush with your bare hands the 5 mulberries for your dressing into the maple syrup and olive oil mixture. Mix and add to the salad. I typically dont have my salad dripping in dressing as I make my salads to last me the whole day and keeping them wilt-free and fresh is a bigger priority. If you're going to have the salad immediately, by all means make more of the salad dressing.
Have this within a reasonable amount of time - The lettuce leaves will start to wilt if you do not refrigerate the salad. Other than that - DELISH!
