This mix-and-match salad, developed by Bastyr University graduate Rita Condon — who also works in PCC’s human resources department — was served at our annual meeting last month to rave reviews. It takes advantage of chard and the abundant, locally grown, leafy greens available this month in our markets.


Use as much or as little of the following greens

Basic vinaigrette

  • 1 cup organic extra-virgin olive oil Add to list
  • 1/2 cup organic red or white wine vinegar Add to list
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced finely or pressed through a garlic press Add to list
  • 2 teaspoons good quality salt or to taste Add to list
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste Add to list


Basic vinaigrette

Start with this recipe as a foundation, and combine different salad oils, vinegars and herbs to create your own combination.

Combine ingredients in a cruet or a corked bottle and shake vigorously. Or, combine using a blender, which keeps the oil and vinegar mixed together longer.
