Recipe Notes

Irish Salad Recipe Notes:
Salad Base Notes: *
For the greens – I used chopped Romaine.  This Irish Salad Recipe can be varied with any type of leafy green, such as spinach, kale, baby kale, spring mix, romaine, etc.   
For the salt, I usually use either Sea Salt or Pink Himalayan Sea Salt.
For 2 servings, I used:

  • 5 hearts of Romaine chopped
  • Juice of half an orange
  • ½ T of olive oil

Notes for Toppings: **
For the Irish cheddar, I used Kerrygold Aged Cheddar with Irish Whiskey.
Notes for Directions: ***
The orange juice and olive oil should together lightly dress the leafy greens.  If you end up putting in too much, then you can add more leafy greens to the bowl to balance it out.  If it is not dressed enough, then add a little more as you prefer.
When including toppings, include the toppings on the individual servings rather than tossing together within the bowl.  This will allow you to properly portion over each serving.

Pairings:

Simple salads pair nicely with any main dish.

I made this Irish Salad Recipe on Saint Patrick’s Day and served it alongside of Irish Curry.  

We are focused on doing low carb / keto meals lately to lose pounds gained during Covid times and working from home.  When doing low carb / keto meals, including a simple salad to accompany your main dish is key. 

Food Prep:

This comes together easily and quickly and can be done right before your meal.  I usually prepare the salad while the main dish is cooking.
