Tuesday Cook Off ~ The Biggest Loser Salad and Dressing

Since I have been posting a lot of baking I decided to change it up a bit for this week.   This week I am featuring “The Biggest Loser” salad and dressing.   Now, the salad is really nothing different but the dressing is awesome.   It’s light and tangy and perfect for the summer.   My husband and I have been enjoying this dressing for about 2 months and I figured it was time to share.   I also believe the basil in the salad also gives it a nice favor.   We also add light feta cheese to our salad but it’s up to you.   This recipe is great for all those summer BBQ’s.

Ingredients: 

1 head of fresh lettuce 1/3 cup olive oil (for dressing)
1 cucumber 4 tbsp lemon juice (for dressing)
2 fresh in-season tomatoes 1 tsp honey (for dressing)
1/4 red onion salt and pepper, to taste
1 bunch fresh basil
Directions:
For the salad: wash and dry the lettuce. Tear it into bite-size pieces. Peel the cucumber and cut it into bite-sized bits. Wash the tomatoes and cut them into bite sized pieces. Peel the onion and slice it as thin as possible. Wash and chop the basil into large pieces.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions and basil. Toss together so the ingredients are well mixed.

For the dressing: place the dressing ingredients in a container with a tight-fitting lid. Cover the container and shake vigorous.  Add the dressing to the salad, toss and serve immediately.
