CHOPPED ROMA SALAD

Here is my version of a Chopped Roma Salad, with shaved Pecorino Romano Cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and cannellini beans.




1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
1 small head radicchio, chopped 
½ cup cannellini beans, drained and rinsed 
8 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
Shaved Pecorino Romano Cheese, for garnish

Vinaigrette 
¼ cup white wine vinegar
1 t Dijon mustard
1 small clove garlic, pressed
½ t freeze-dried or dried oregano
½ t freeze-dried or dried basil
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Rinse and spin dry the lettuces.
Place in a salad bowl and add the beans and sun-dried tomatoes.

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, garlic, oregano, and basil.
While whisking, slowly add the olive oil and whisk until the vinaigrette is emulsified.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Pour some of the vinaigrette over the salad and toss to combine.
Top with a few pieces of shaved Pecorino Romano cheese and serve.

Serves 2
