Bitters Salad and Raspberry Dressing

Bitters Salad
I love a healthy salad that packs flavor and isn’t something I make every day. This definitely fits the bill.
The bitters are beautifully contrasted with the sweetness of the raspberries and tang of he lemon juice.
Ingredients
1 heart of romaine lettuce, ripped into bite-size pieces
1 endive, ripped into bite-size pieces
½ cups arugula and/or watercress, ripped into bite-size pieces
1 rib celery, thinly sliced
2 scallions, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 small garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup black olives
1/4 cup baby green tomatoes, cut in half
salt and pepper to taste

 

Dressing Ingredients
1/4 cup raspberries
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
½ cup extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

Just before serving, blend the dressing in a blender on high, pour over the salad and toss.
