Antipasti and Herb Salad with Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette

Antipasti and Herb Salad with Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette

This Food Network recipe for Antipasti Salad was my inspiration for this salad, but I revised it so much it should probably just be a new recipe.  I served this with as part of a tapas meal with Garlicky Shrimp with Olive Oil (Gambas al Ajillo).  The lemon-infused dressing was a really good contrast to the heavy garlic and olive-oil flavor of the shrimp – definitely a great combo.  The basis of this salad, pre-bagged herb salad, contains enough flavor with the inclusion of herbs such as dill, cilantro and parsley along with the lettuce that I kept the dressing very simple with just olive oil, garlic and lemon juice.

Antipasti and Herb Salad (2 servings)

½ 4 oz. bag of “Fresh Herb Salad” such as Earthbound Farms Organic

4 large artichoke hearts, drained well and chopped

1 small yellow heirloom tomato, chopped

½ orange pepper, chopped
1 shallot, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 oz. shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano

Heat olive oil in a skillet and cook chopped orange peppers over medium-high heat for approximately 5 minutes, until they begin to brown and soften.  Add shallots and balsamic vinegar to the skillet.  Reduce heat and cook until shallots are softened and balsamic vinegar is reduced, approximately 3-5 minutes.  Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.  Toss herb mix salad with artichoke hearts, orange pepper mixture and lemon-garlic vinaigrette.  Top with shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette

1 clove of garlic, minced
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
juice of ½ lemon
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Whisk together ingredients and adjust oil-to-lemon-juice ration to taste.
