This salad is rather unusual but rather nice. It is a great salad for Autumn and early winter. Caramelised onions are mixed with bitter greens.
Take time to caramelise your onions. They will take between 30 and 45 minutes, depending on your stove, your pan, the onions and the heat that you used. These were cooked for 45 mins, but usually I cook them with a little more heat and they take 30 mins. Watch them carefully as they cook, stirring often.
Caramelised Onion and Greens Salad
Toss caramelised onions with salad greens – use bitter greens such as radicchio, escarole, witlof or endive, or other salad greens such as cos or iceberg lettuce – and toasted pine nuts and chopped tomatoes or cherry tomatoes. Drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil.
Different greens allow you to also vary the presentation.
