Veal Scallopini Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

If warm salads please you, then you will adore this meaty veal salad recipe. Serve it while the veal is still warm, for the best results, so you get contrasting temperatures as well as flavors and textures. This salad is great as lunch or dinner, and you can serve it with crusty bread or naan bread if you want, to make it extra filling.

The various salad greens are combined with cherry tomatoes and other ingredients for freshness, then you have a warm mixture of gently sautéed celery, bell pepper and onions along with that. A lot of the flavor comes from the dressing and that is made with honey for sweetness, lime for sharpness and some diluted mayonnaise to hold it together and give it a nice creamy feel.

This salad is healthy because it is so well-balanced, offering something from each of the food groups. Salad recipes can be as light or as filling as you want them to be, and if you include something meaty like veal, there is no reason why a homemade salad cannot be satisfying enough for an evening meal. Even the kids might like this one.
