Midtown Market Flavors will feature Spring into Salad on Saturday, June 22. A variety of healthy salads and easy dressings will be available for market patrons to sample along with take-home recipes. Spring greens with goat cheese and toasted pecans are a wonderful basic salad this time of year. This salad pops with the addition of Red Pepper Jelly Vinaigrette. You can also use it as a marinade for grilled chicken or pork.
Red Pepper Jelly Vinaigrette
Whisk together 6 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, 1/3 cup olive oil, 3 tablespoons of red pepper jelly, one minced shallot (about 2 tablespoons), 1 tablespoon of coarse-grained mustard, ¼ teaspoon of kosher salt, and ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper in a small bowl. This recipe makes about one cup.
