Romano and pineapple salad


IMG_4264I heart salads! It’s my staple option at any time of the day. Salads are so versatile, catering to all tastes and satisfying the cravings.

I believe there is no single ingredient from the food pyramid you can’t stir in. Personally i like adding fruits and nuts.

IMG_4250For this fool proof salad you need (yield 2-3 portions):

  • mix green leaf (arugula, red oak, green oak and frisé), 200g
  • handful walnut
  • shaved aged romano cheese, about 50 g
  • 3-4 slices fresh pineapple

You can use any type of green leaf of your choice. If you’re not fan of the sharp and piquant flavor of aged romano cheese, you can replace it with parmesan and it can still do the balance with the pineapple.

For the dressing you need:

  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tbsp orange juice
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
