Purple Salad4:41 AM
I never give recipes here on Toulouse Confessions even though I love to cook and experiment all the time. I don't mostly because there are so many cooking blogs out there that are awesome so I feel intimidated by my lack of professionalism. But I just have to share this:
I call it Purple Salad because it is so purple! I made a blueberry dressing in honor of spring and couldn't believe how yummy it was! It was my first try at making up a salad dressing.
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup Walnut Oil
2-3 TBSP Walnut Vinegar
1/4 cup Blueberries
1 TSP Honey (I actually hate honey. HATE IT! But a dressing needs something like mustard or honey to paste the oil and vinegar together. You can add more honey if you like it. I only add the bare minimum!)
Blend all ingredients together with a hand blender.
For the salad I ripped up dark greens, added whole walnuts, beets and a bit of crumbled blue cheese. Add a drizzle of dressing and VOILA! you have a purple salad!
WARNING: Do not eat this while holding a new born. It is very hard to get the dribbled stains out!
