Sweet Onion Vinaigrette Salad

Food is like art for me. A little flavor here and there until you have something spectacular! I whipped this creation together at the last minute to go with my braised apple pork chops. Made it up as I went along and it was super yummy!!

Sweet Onion Vinaigrette Salad
  • 1/2 head of iceberg lettuce chopped and rinsed
  • 1/2 head of Romaine lettuce, chopped and rinsed
  • 1 cucumber thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup crushed walnuts
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
Mix dressing ingredients together in blender, set aside. Heat skillet to medium high and toast walnuts until golden brown continually stirring (about 5 minutes). Toss lettuce, cucumbers, cheese and walnuts together with dressing. Enjoy!
