Recreating restaurant dishes is easy and less expensive. Here’s a restaurant salad I modified by using substitutes for what was on hand. According to the online menu, the original calls for Mixed Greens, Fresh Roasted Beets, Goat Cheese and Toasted Pistachios Tossed with a Hazelnut-Citrus Dressing. My version was made with arugula, beets, ricotta cheese, oranges, red onion, almonds, and a from-scratch oil/vinegar/seasoning dressing. Cooking at home allows you to utilize portion control, use fresher and healthier ingredients, and you can use less or more of an ingredient if you choose. Not to mention it’s faster, more relaxing, and you get to choose your background noise : )
