Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Capers Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Funny thing…I make the Mr. meat dishes because he complains he doesn’t have enough meat in the house, then he eats up all my vegetarian dishes. Ok, plan B for lunch today. Use up everything else in the fridge. Result: a great big salad.

  • 4 cups romaine lettuce, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup yellow and red cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn and peas, thawed
  • 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 2 tbsps pine nuts
  • Few tbsp of balsamic vinaigrette, recipe below:
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp grainy mustard
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan or Celtic sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Blend the vinaigrette ingredients together until well mixed. For the salad, combine all ingredients in a bowl, and add a few tbsp of the vinaigrette. Mix and enjoy! The remaining vinaigrette can be stored in the fridge for a few days.
