Best Mediterranean Salad Recipe With House Olive Oil Vinaigrette: Fresh, Light, Healthy & Tasty

There's a small, quaint Italian restaurant across town that has the best Mediterranean salad. Crisp romaine lettuce is tossed with artichoke hearts, fetatomatoes, green olives, chunks of prosciutto and al dente rotini, then drizzled with their amazing house vinaigrette. The freshness of the ingredients is off the charts, but it's the vinaigrette that makes it. The salad dressing is olive oil heavy – and made with rich, good-quality olive oil. It makes such a difference!

Here is my version of this Mediterranean salad recipe and olive oil vinaigrette. You could make it heartier by adding grilled or boiled shrimp or cooked, shredded chicken.

Cuisine: Mediterranean / Italian
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

  • chopped romaine lettuce
  • artichoke hearts, drained well and patted dry with paper towels
  • cherry or grape tomatoes

Olive Oil Vinaigrette

  1. Put the vinaigrette ingredients into a bowl. Whisk well to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Put desired amount of each salad ingredient into a bowl. Toss to combine. 
  3. Drizzle on desired amount of vinaigrette. Toss.

Now I'm craving this salad. It is so good. I think the restaurant uses fresh artichoke hearts, but that's not happening with mine. :-)
This looks so light and refreshing and healthy...
