Bistro Salad

Currently, there’s a heatwave that is over most of the east coast of Canada and US. Most people crave something lighter and refreshing to eat. Salads are a way to get nourishment and if one can avoid turning on the stove or oven – that’s a good thing.

I served up this bistro style salad recently at a Greek Supper Club consisting of mixed greens, red onions, a mix of coloured peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes. Tossed in a dressing with a touch of Dijon mustard and honey – Greek meets French.
