Farmer's Bounty salad

I'll totally admit that I wanted to try this salad dressing because it was called "sunny"! And, it was created by Good Things Catered, so I knew it would be good. The only changes I made were using green onion instead of red onion and using dried oregano because I didn't have fresh. It was still excellent!

Farmer’s Bounty Salad
6 c. spring mix salad greens
1/2 c. sliced cucumber
1/4 c. sliced red onion
2 vine ripened tomatoes, sliced
2 small fresh carrots, sliced
3 pink radishes, sliced
2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp Dijon
1/4 tsp fresh oregano, minced
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/8 tsp granulated garlic
1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
In large bowl, add salad greens. Top with sliced cucumber, red onion, tomato, carrots, radishes and set aside. In medium bowl, combine vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon, oregano, salt, pepper and granulated garlic. Whisking constantly, slowly add olive oil in thin stream, whisking to emulsify. Once combined well, taste to see if extra salt or pepper is needed (or more lemon if the juice had a weak flavor). Set aside until ready to serve. When ready to serve, whisk dressing and drizzle desired amount over salad and serve.
