About this recipe: The best part of this salad is the dressing. Its great on any salad and I prefer using big onions that are strong in flavour. Add a bit of goat cheese for extra flavour.


Serves: 10 

  • 2 large onions, sliced into wedges
  • 250ml olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 125ml chicken stock
  • 6 tablespoons sherry wine vinegar
  • 700g mixed salad greens
  • 120g toasted chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
