Ride Your Bike to Coney Island Salad

The salad was inspired by one that I ate at Diner in Williamsburg one early afternoon while rather hung over.  It made me feel better.   I started making it a lot.  One morning, Silvi and I ate this salad for breakfast once and then rode our bike’s from Queens to Coney Island.  For those of you unfamiliar with the outer boroughs of NYC…..thats a REALLY long bike ride.

  • Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • basil leaves
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • corn scraped off of one cooked cob
  • 1 avacado, diced
  • 1 cooked beet diced
  • 1 small cucumber peeled and diced
  • chevre
  • creamy herb dressing (see that recipe under “4 reasons to make home-made mayonnaise” on this blog)

    I love this recipe and look forward to making it every summer when the corn and beets appear in the farmer’s market. I’d forgotten about the basil leaves and red pepper…yum! I did not realize this was a hangover salad – ha!!
