Romaine salad recipes are a great base for fun alterations and additions. This Shavuot romaine salad recipe was inspired by the classic mozzarella, tomato, basil salad. It’s sweeter and even brighter looking with the substitution of strawberries for tomatoes. It’s a great addition to your Shavuot recipes.
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 heart romaine lettuce, torn or cut into bite-sized pieces (3 cups lightly packed)
1 8-ounce container of strawberries, hulled and sliced
3 ounces mozzarella cheese, diced (about 3/4 cup), try and use the freshest kind that comes in a ball
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, cut into ribbons
¼ cup pine nuts, toasted
In a small bowl whisk together the oil, vinegar salt and pepper. Place the lettuce in a large bowl and toss with half the dressing. Place the lettuce onto a serving platter.
Toss the strawberries and diced mozzarella with the remaining dressing and place down the center of the salad. Slice the basil in thin strips and sprinkle over the top of the salad. Top with toasted pine nuts.
