In honor of the Masters we had a Green Jacket Salad with our steaks tonight. When we lived in Augusta my friends always raved about this salad served at a restaurant by the same name, if I'm not mistaken. By the time I moved to Augusta it had closed down, so I was never fortunate enough to dine there. However, I was given a version of the recipe and it is DELICIOUS!
Green Jacket Salad
1 head iceberg lettuce, torn into bite size pieces
pita bread, toasted
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. seasoning salt (or to taste)
1 tsp. Accent (or to taste)
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley
1/4 c. chopped green onion tops
1 tomatoes, chopped very fine
Toast pita bread and set aside to cool. When cool, break into bite-size pieces.
Tear lettuce, put in large bowl and set aside.
Add oil to a medium size bowl, whisk while you drizzle in vinegar. Add salt, Accent, pepper, and oregano. Whisk in chopped parsley, green onion tops and tomato.
Before serving combine lettuce and pita chips. Drizzle dressing over lettuce and toss. (You may not need all of the dressing...I don't use all of it.) Serve immediately.
|Look what Greg bought me at the Masters! I love it, but he won't let me have it until my birthday in May.|
