Oakleaf Salad with Feta, Blackberries and Apricots


http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




Mild, sweet and delicate oakleaf lettuce pairs wonderfully with slightly bitter radicchio, salty Feta, juicy fruits and paprika cashews in this easy healthy salad. Substitute lollo rosso for red oak leaf lettuce and leave out Feta or use some smoked tofu instead if you want to keep it vegan.

SaladDressing
  • 1 small head Red Oakleaf lettuce
  • 1/3 head Radicchio lettuce
  • 100 g Feta cheese, cubed
  • 3 Apricots, stoned and cut into wedges
  • 150 g Blackberries
  • Red basil leaves
  • Olive herb
  • 60 g Paprika cashew nuts
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp White balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  1. Arrange the salad leaves on serving plates and top with feta cubes, apricot wedges, blackberries, herbs and scatter the paprika cashew nuts over.
  2. For the dressing, mix white balsamic vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper and olive oil. Toss gently and serve.

Not is this salad just downright beautiful to look it, it sounds delicious and I have everything for it!!! Actually, I don't have red basil that I know would be excellent, but sweet green basil should work shouldn't it? What an exciting salad!

Angie, I always learn about some new (to me) ingredient when I come by your site - I'd never heard of "oakleaf lettuce" before today. Your salad looks gorgeous - your photos stellar - love the pairing of fruit and salty feta with the mild lettuce.

What a beautiful salad, Angie! You've again inspired me to be creative with my fruits and vegetables, so for lunch today, I shall design a salad of a half a mango, half an avocado, blueberries, cucumbers, a few roast tomatoes and perhaps some goats cheese! I'm so looking forward to it.

Gorgeous salad and so many flavors, fruits, nuts, cheese. Not familiar with Red Oakleaf lettuce. Apricots are all over Austria, miss them as they are not as good here.

Monica 9/7/16 03:35

Very nice balance in this salad. We also love the bitterness of radicchio...we often like to grill it give it a little char and to warm it up before chopping into a big salad for a cookout.
