TO ASSEMBLE SALAD
  1. Take each ingredient and make a line from top to bottom of platter or plate almost overlapping with next ingredient. Assemble so like colors don't adjoin one another for it to be the prettiest!
FOR THE DRESSING:
  1. Preheat oven to 425ยบ
  2. Place onion (cut side down) and garlic on pan. Brush onion tops with olive oil. Roast until onion gets slightly charred, about 45 minutes to one hour. Remove to cool.
  3. Squeeze garlic out of cloves into blender. Add onions and all remaining ingredients except oil and blend about 30 seconds. Slowly drizzle in olive oil. (Dressing can be made ahead 4-5 days and kept in refrigerator). Drizzle over assembled salads
