Warm Salad

I love salad, but sometimes having something warm feels more satiating, which is what I love about this easy salad. You can make it even more filling by adding some grilled chicken or shrimp for extra protein. If you love this easy warm salad recipe, you should also try this BBQ Chicken Salad, Blackened Chicken Salad, or this Rosemary Chicken Salad with Avocado and Bacon.

Artichoke Hearts, Roasted Peppers and Balsamic

My girlfriend, who works at Da Angelo on Long Island, had been telling me about the warm salad they have as a special menu. Since I love everything they make at that restaurant, it sounded so good and simple. You saute all the ingredients in a skillet with balsamic and oil, adding the mozzarella at the very end. All this gets poured over your cold chopped greens. Verdict: I loved it, and it’s so easy to make!

How to Make Warm Salad with Artichokes

  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the red onion for a couple of minutes until soft.
  2. Add the artichoke hearts, roasted peppers, and capers, drizzle the mixture with balsamic vinegar, and cook for one minute.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and add mozzarella.
  4. Pour the veggies over romaine lettuce. Drizzle with a teaspoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Variations:

  • Olives: Add kalamata or gaeta olives.
  • Cheese: Swap mozzarella for feta cheese or halloumi.
  • Bell Peppers: You can roast red bell pepper at home if you don’t want to buy roasted peppers or swap them for sun dried tomatoes.
  • Protein: Add grilled chicken, shrimp, or salmon.
  • Increase the servings: Double or quadruple the recipe to feed more.

  1. Can you use balsamic glaze instead of balsamic vinegar?

  2. Excellent, fast and easy!
    Thanks, Gina!

  3. Great salad, I used what I had so it included pitted kalamati olives as I was out of capers, reduced fat feta, the out of a jar roasted red peppers, and marinated ready to eat artichoke hearts ( drained as much as possible-but then I didn’t add any oil to the recipe, since oil in those) Not a super fan of balsamic so just left the dressing off of this. I added hard boiled eggs and chick peas also. Wonderful salad, love how the peppers onions and artichokes are warmed up and get a bit brown. This is a keeper! Would love this with grilled shrimp etc. also

  9. This is such a fun twist on a salad! I absolutely love warm salads now! Sauteed onions in this are magical. I added jumbo shrimp sauteed with salt, pepper and a touch of crushed red pepper. This is going to be a regular because it’s delicious and SO easy.
