RECIPE: Romaine Salad with Cranberries, Nuts & Pesto Vinaigrette by The Sexy Chef

Here's another interestingly "green" recipe that I learned from The Sexy Chef.




Pesto Vinaigrette:

1 1/2 cup basil, chopped
1/2 tbsp garlic, chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp salt

Puree all ingredients in a blender until emulsified.


Romaine Salad:

6 cups romaine lettuce, torn
1/2 cup carrots, sliced thinly
1/2 cup jicama, sliced thinly
1/2 cup cucumber, sliced thinly
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped

In a large bowl, combine lettuce, carrots, jicama, and cucumber. Top with cranberries and walnuts. Serve with Pesto vinaigrette on the side.

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
