Everyday Simple Salad
Updated: Aug 4
3 lemons zested and juiced
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons honey
⅔ cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and cracked black pepper to taste
3 hearts baby romaine, trimmed and leaves separated
3 ounces quince paste, diced into 1/4 inch cubes
⅔ cup chopped marcona almonds
3 ounces manchego cheese, freshly grated
For vinaigrette: Place lemon zest, juice, mustard, and honey into a large mixing bowl and whisk together. While whisking, pour oil, in a slow and steady stream until fully incorporated and blended together. Season with salt and pepper.
Top vinaigrette with romaine, cubed quince paste and half the almonds and toss together. Pour salad onto a large platter, into a single layer and sprinkle with remaining almonds.
Grate cheese over salad, creating a blanket of manchego. Lightly season and serve.
