Green and Red Salad

Serves: 4-6

Prep time: 15 minutes


  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 2 cups romaine
  • 1 purple onion, sliced into rings and cut in half
  • 5 radishes
  • Newman’s Own Olive Oil and Vinegar dressing

Note: normally I make my own vinaigrette, but it’s less expensive to buy one bottle of salad dressing than all the ingredients needed to make the dressing yourself. If you want to make a vinaigrette salad dressing, here’s a recipe I like:

Vinaigrette Dressing

Serves: makes enough for one large salad


  • 4 ounces extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped finely
  • 2 teaspoon Dijon coarse mustard
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar


  1. Whisk ingredients together and taste to check seasonings. (Individual tastes vary, so you may prefer to add more vinegar or mustard.)

For the salad:


  1. Wash vegetables and pat dry.
  2. Slice onion and radishes.
  3. Tear romaine and add arugula and spinach to onions and radishes and toss.
  4. Drizzle with salad dressing and serve.
