  • 1/2 red onion sliced thin
  • 2 boxes Little Leaf spring mix salad blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 2 large heirloom tomatoes sliced
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese more as desired
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free panko breadcrumbs or finely ground pecans toasted


  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 garlic clove grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano


  • Make marinated onions and salad dressing:  Slice the onion into thin rings and place them in the bottom of a mason jar (or a container or bowl). Pour over the oil, lemon, garlic and spices. Give them a toss, cover and set aside until ready to assemble.
  • Toast Breadcrumbs: Heat a small skillet over medium heat and add panko. Toast for 2-3 minutes until golden brown, stirring often to avoid burning.


  • Add Spring mix blend to a large bowl or serving dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Arrange avocado and tomato on top of lettuce.
  • Add your marinated onions with a fork, leaving dressing remaining to dress the salad.
  • Top with freshly grated parmesan and toasted panko.
  • Dress the salad and serve immediately!


  • Don't want to use panko? Grind up pecans to a breadcrumb-like consistency and toast them! This will be your paleo-friendly option!
  • You'll note this makes a salad that serves 4-6. That's because it's truly the most crowd-pleasing, dinner party salad ever. But you can absolutely scale it down for two. Simply use one box of your spring mix salad blend and top with your desired amount of add-ins and dressing.
