2 Romaine Lettuce Heads
½ Bunch Green Basil; Finely Chopped
½ Bunch Red Basil; Finely Chopped
½ Bunch Cilantro; Finely Chopped
¼ Bunch Parsley; Finely Chopped
¼ Bunch Mint; Finely Chopped
2 Tomatoes; Roughly Chopped
3 Persian Cucumbers; Cut into fourths
½ Head White Onions; Roughly Chopped
½ Cup Cooked Shrimp
Follow the cutting instructions and place everything into large sized salad bowl, big enough for mixing. I love having all these aromatic herbs such as mint, basil and cilantro in there as it gives such strong flavors that make a beautifully tasting combination. You’re really going to enjoy the fresh and bold taste of all these ingredients combined! And now the time has come for my infamous Mediterranean Salad dressing to top it all off. Here’s what you’re going to need:
¼ C Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 ½ Lemons; Squeeze Lemon Juice
¼ tsp. Dried Mint Flakes
¼ tsp. Aleppo Pepper Flakes
2 Garlic Cloves; Minced
1/8 tsp. Salt
All you have to do is combing all these ingredients in a bowl and whisk it all together until you see it all coming together. You want to look for a clouded consistency when looking in the bowl and that’s how you’ll know when everything is combined and ready to be tossed in with the rest of the ingredients in the salad bowl. Go ahead and give the dressing a taste before tossing everything all together and you can always add more lemon or salt to your own taste and liking! Next step is to just toss everything all together, place your portion into your own little bowl and enjoy it!
I would love to hear feedback from you guys who go ahead and try this recipe. It’s a perfect recipe for seafood lovers that want a take on a light summer and spring fresh salad; plus it doesn’t hurt that it’s so simple to make right at home!
