Simple Side Salad with Herbs & Champagne Vinaigrette

Simple Side Salad with Herbs & Champagne Vinaigrette

In the colder months I consume a bunch of soup. Likewise in the warmer months, my cravings change and all I want to eat are salads. I especially enjoy a salad where fragrant herbs are incorporated as another leafy green. In this recipe, parsley, cilantro, and chervil are mixed in with butter leaves and tossed with a light champagne vinaigrette. It will pair perfectly with grilled meats, panini sandwiches, fish kabobs, and succulent cheesy soufflés. This salad is so delish you'll be making it all summer long. To check out the recipe,
