Mixed Greens SaladWhat makes this very simple salad special is the fresh homemade dressing — and that’s simple, too. Leaves of fresh sweet basil, with their unique taste, are puréed with olive oil and white wine vinegar, which will take you just seconds with an immersion blender (a food processor will do the job also). The Inn & Spa At Cedar Falls – Hocking Hills Lodging in Logan, Ohio, where “Fine American cuisine is the specialty” has provided this recipe. There’s plenty to do around Logan, from ziplining to winery visits to watching your meals being cooked in the open kitchen of Hocking Hills.


Mixed Greens Salad with Basil Vinaigrette

Yields 8


  1. 8 cups Greens (your favorites or a prewashed spring mix is just fine)
  2. 1 cup Fresh Sweet Basil-roughly chopped
  3. 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
  4. 2/3 cup olive oil
  5. Salt and pepper
  1. Chop the lettuce into about 1-inch by 3-inch strips and rinse in a salad spinner or under cold water in a strainer, then dry on paper towels (if using the prewashed greens, skip this step).
  2. Place the basil and the vinegar in about a 5-6 inch glass or plastic container and start to purée with an immersion blender.
  3. Gradually add the olive in a slow steady stream until all is incorporated.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Place cleaned greens in large mixing bowl and drizzle some of the basil vinaigrette over the greens.
  6. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and mix well to coat the greens (if looks dry add a little more vinaigrette).
  7. Serve family style or on individual plates.
