This simple green salad has a fresh, vibrant vinaigrette, and uses fresh minced herbs as a final touch. Serve this salad as the French do, as a light, fresh accompaniment to rich foods like stews, dishes with a cream sauce, or a great roast.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 7 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh chives
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh tarragon

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Whisk together white wine vinegar and mustard in a small bowl. Slowly drizzle in olive oil while whisking. Mix in garlic, salt, and pepper. Chill vinaigrette in the refrigerator until ready to toss with the salad greens.
  2. 2 Wash and thoroughly dry mixed salad greens. Place in a large, chilled salad bowl.
  3. 3 Stir dressing, and drizzle some of it on the greens and toss. Add enough dressing to coat the leaves, but not puddle in the bottom of the bowl.
  4. 4 Sprinkle fresh parsley, chives, and tarragon over the salad and serve immediately.
