Swiss Cheese Salad Recipe

Swiss Cheese Salad Recipe

I entered this recipe that I created myself in a local cooking contest in 1980 - it took first prize! The salad complements any main dish and is also good for picnics or potlucks...just take the lettuce along in a plastic bag or container and toss with the cheese and vegetable mixture when you arrive.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1 cup diced green pepper
  • 1 cup sliced pimiento-stuffed olives
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 cups shredded lettuce
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine onions, celery, green pepper and olives. In another bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. Pour over vegetables and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
  • 2. Just before serving, place lettuce in a large salad bowl; add the cheese and dressing with vegetables. Toss lightly. Yield: 6-8 servings.
