America's Favorite Salads

By The Daily Meal | Shine Food

For some people, salads are just go-to options at lunch or dinner when it's crunch time - quick, healthy options when nothing else comes to mind at the moment. For others, they're just speed bumps on the way to something greater - a perfect roast chicken, a juicy grilled steak, or a mouthwatering rack of ribs - palate-cleansers, appetizers, but nothing memorable. Just some greens with some kind of vinaigrette and maybe a few other vegetables thrown in for good measure. 

 But salad can be so much more than just an afterthought. With a little love, you can make some truly exciting salads, and where better to start than with the culinary greats - iconic American salad recipes

Caprese Salad Recipe 

 This classic Italian salad is a must-have when tomatoes are at their best. Just a touch of olive oil and balsamic vinegar along with sweet, peppery basil highlights their natural flavor. And make sure to use the best mozzarella you can find. With ripe, juicy tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil, this salad rocks! 


 2 cups sliced tomatoes or Roma tomatoes 3 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced thinly 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh basil Salt and pepper, to taste 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar 


In a shallow bowl or plate, layer or arrange the tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Coat with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Serve immediately.
