For an Italian twist on salad, I mix greens with red onion, mushrooms, olives, pepperoncini, lemon juice and seasoning. Add tomatoes and carrots if you like.
- In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients; toss lightly. If desired, add toppings.
- In a small bowl, whisk vinaigrette ingredients until blended. Serve with salad. Yield: 8 servings (1/2 cup vinaigrette).
