This was truly delish. And so healthy, too. I always keep my eye out for unexpected and different salad combinations, and this is a perfect example. The flavors go so well together - even my almost 3 year old ate this one up!
Romaine Wedges with Sardines & Caramelized Onions
From EatingWell: January/February 2014
Don’t be afraid of the sardines in this healthy wedge salad recipe. Sardines are extremely nutritious, and are a perfect match for winter greens. In this healthy wedge salad recipe we’ve made little boats out of hearts of romaine lettuce and filled them with savory sardines, sweet caramelized onions, juicy cherry tomatoes and creamy dressing.

On its own I found the dressing is too simple and sour; I altered it a bit the with addition of 1 Tbsp parsley and ¼ tsp sugar to try to ameliorate that. However, the dressing really blends into perfection with the onions, tomatoes and sardines! The sweetness of the onions and tomatoes nicely balanced how tart the dressing was. This was an excellent flavor combination – the sautéed onions really put the whole thing over the top!
