- Make the dressing: Combine all dressing ingredients in a food processor except for the olive oil. Pulse to blend. In a slow stream, add the olive oil, so you end up with an emulsified vinaigrette.
- Place all of the salad ingredients except for the cheese in a large bowl. Right before serving, add about half of the dressing and toss well. Add more dressing little by little as necessary; be sure to dress greens very generously, otherwise salad will be bland. Toss in the cheese, then taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, if necessary.
Vinaigrette may separate over time. Add to a jar or bottle and shake vigorously to emulsify.

Note: Ricotta salata is an Italian sheep's milk cheese that has a salty, slightly tangy flavor, almost like a dry Italian feta. It is not the same as the wet ricotta in the tub. You can find it at Whole Foods, gourmet grocers or specialty cheese shops.
