Salad greens with Mozzarella

Salad greens

I mentioned in one of my restaurant reviews on Uber Huber that I'll "someday" assemble my own salad at home, a salad something close to what we had at Brotzeit. And... here it is..! =)

A packet of pre-mixed greens
Mozzarella mini balls
Basil pesto
Zucchini, sliced and roasted with some olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard
Semi-dried Tomatoes, chopped if you like. Else use it straight from the packet.
Balsamic vinegar
Olive oil
Brown sugar
Dried oregano

1] Wash the greens and let dry either with a spinner, left to dry on a strainer or with kitchen towel/ paper.

2] In a small bowl, prepare the dressing by mixing the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, a dash of salt and freshly grounded pepper, and some sugar. Oh, not to forget, the mustard and dried oregano too. I "beat" it in a bowl with a fork. Sometimes, I find a small container, put them all in and give it a good shake.

3] Now, leave the greens (have to be dry by now) on a plate/ in a bowl. Drizzle the dressing over. Add the roasted zucchini.

4] Scatter the tomatoes (without the oil it came with) and cheese (without the brine it came with) over.

5] Add little dollops of basil pesto all over.

6] A tasty salad is now ready! Now, who says salads are boring??!

Mozzarella Mini Balls. Be sure to
get the mini balls rather than
the big one, else, you get up
having to cut them into bite-size
(that was what happened to me!)
