Toasted Ravioli Salad

Alright, buckle up for this one – we’re talking about a game-changer: Toasted Ravioli Salad. Imagine this: cheesy ravioli, not boiled to death but toasted to a golden, crispy crunch. Now, take that goodness and throw it into a mix of fresh greens – spinach, arugula, and romaine, the works.

Here’s the deal – it’s not your average salad. You’re not getting a bowl of sad lettuce. No, sir. You’re getting a party on a plate. Start by boiling that ravioli like your nonna taught you. Then, pop those babies in the oven until they’re dancing with a golden glow.

Meanwhile, chop up some cherry tomatoes, slice a bit of red bell pepper, and toss in some red onion for that extra kick. Mix it all up like you’re in your own salad mosh pit.

Now, let’s talk dressing. We’re not doing the bottled stuff here. Whisk up a quick balsamic vibe – olive oil, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic, salt, and pepper. Simple, but it’ll make your taste buds do a happy dance.

Throw that dressing over the ravioli and salad mix. Toss it around like you’re playing a game of catch with your food. Plate it up, and don’t forget to snow Parmesan over the top because, let’s be real, everything’s better with Parm.

This isn’t just a salad; it’s a revelation. Crunchy ravioli meets fresh salad, and the balsamic dressing ties it all together like a flavor maestro. It’s not a leap of faith; it’s a leap into flavor town. So, grab a fork and get ready for a taste bud party, with this toasted ravioli salad.
