White House Salad


This salad was created by White House chef Sam Kass when he visited the set of “The Biggest Loser.”  It is known as the salad that no one can get enough of.  I tested out this salad on a picnic with friends this past weekend and it is a winner!  Simple ingredients paired with a super flavorful dressing.


1 head of fresh lettuce
1 cucumber
2 fresh in-season tomatoes
1/4 red onion
1 bunch fresh basil


1/3 C olive oil
4 T lemon juice
1 t honey
Salt and pepper to taste


For the salad: tear the lettuce into bite size pieces, peel the cucumber and cut into bite sized bits, cut tomatoes and cut them into bite sized pieces, slice onion as thin as possible, chop basil into large pieces.  Mix all together.

For the dressing: Place all ingredients in a container with a tight fitting lid.  Cover the container and shake vigorously.

Toss and serve immediately.
