    Default Main Dish Salads!

    This popped up on the radar this morning....sounds like a keeper to
    me...love "main dish" salads.

    1/2 lb. baby arugula, washed and spun dry (12 loosely packed cups)
    3 Tbs. red-wine vinegar
    1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives (about 15), finely chopped
    1 tsp. Dijon mustard
    2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
    1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 large russet potato (about 3/4 lb.), peeled and cut in 1/2-inch dice
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    3/4 cup finely diced red onion (1 very small)
    1/4 lb. feta, crumbled (scant 1 cup)
    1/2 lb. small ripe cherry (or grape) tomatoes, halved (1 heaping cup)

    Directions continue....

    A bit low on protein is it not?

    Looks good. And I have all the ingredients. Thanks. Not sure why
    some people are having a hissy fit about your blog link.

    Not every vegetarian eats two pound of protein at a meal. My
    suggestion was just for a single entree.....protein can be obtained in
    other forms, different times....different meals.

    ....but you already knew that.

    That's what I thought. If it's a main dish, it needs some protein.
    If I had something else in the same meal that had protein in it,
    that would be the main dish, not the weak-@$$ salad.

    Not that it didn't look tasty, mind you. It's just not a main
    dish. With that salad as the main dish, I'd be looking for
    some real food in about an hour, or at least a big piece
    of cheese or salami or something.

    What a fabulous idea Cindy...why don't you try adding your own
    personal choices and tell us what you enjoyed.

    As always...I will add my decade old tagline....personal choice and
    preferences...plus ingredients make any dish your special meal. You
    decide....I just offer the suggestions.

    Seemed like a light main dish to me. The recipe suggested serving with
    a light soup and bread. Maybe that wouldn't be a main meal for the day
    (unless I was on a diet), but I personally wouldn't be hungry an hour
    later.

    The recipe also suggests topping the salad with a chicken breast. I'm
    assuming a half breast per serving, but it didn't give any details.

    I refuse to feed Mr. Bill's penchant for directing people to his blog
    rather than interacting here with everybody, so I didn't follow the
    link. What he posted here at rfc was insufficient for a meal.

    Did neither you nor Marty B note that he was directing you to a
    commercial magazine's website? It wasn't his blog. Perhaps he didn't
    want to infringe on their copyright, I don't know.

    And evidently can''t read, since the link isn't his blog.
