Need a wonderful, delicious, lighter yet substantial salad to stand up to that holiday ham?  Well, I have one that fills the bill!  This is a standby on my holiday buffet.  The dressing can be made ahead, as well as the salad.  That leaves more time for you to enjoy the party!

 

1 head Romaine lettuce, chopped

1 head Boston lettuce, torn

or 1 bag mixed greens

1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced

1 cup or more to taste Monterrey Jack cheese

1/2 cup or more to taste Feta cheese

1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans or walnuts

Sprinkling of flax seeds (optional but so good for you!)

 

Layer greens on platter.  Sprinkle with berries, cheeses and nuts.  Drizzle dressing over right before serving.

 

Dressing:

Whisk together:

1/2 cup red wine or raspberry vinegar

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar or Splenda

1 cup Canola oil

Salt and sweet paprika to taste

Dash pepper

 

Tips from Rita’s Lazarus-Macy’s/Ridge Market kitchens:  How much ham to buy?  If it has a bone, count on 2-3 servings per pound; if the ham is boneless, you’ll get about 4-5 servings per pound.  Since most hams are sold fully cooked, all you need to do is heat it until the ham is hot throughout, or until it reaches 140-145.
