Garden Salad with Sweet Onion Dressing ~ Raw Food Recipe

serves 2 ~ $2.13 per serving

1/2 head romaine ($.95)
1/2 bunch (or bag) spinach ($1.50)
12 radishes ($1.00)
2 medium onions ($.30)
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 tablespoons olive oil ($.20)
3 tablespoons agave or agave ($.30)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

There was an onion dressing I remember using a long time ago and I
thought maybe I’d try to replicate it to go with this salad of greens,
radishes and onions. It was perfect.

For the dressing, puree 1/2 onion, the garlic, agave, olive oil, salt,
black pepper and a sprinkle of crushed red pepper. It can be hard to
make this in such a small batch because the blender just doesn’t work on
such small amounts. I get around that by using a pint sized canning
jar attached to the blade part of my blender. But, you could easily
double or triple the amount and it should store in the fridge for at
least a few days.

The salad is just the romaine and spinach tossed with thinly slices
radishes and onions and topped with the onion dressing and some more red
pepper flakes.
