I love salads and make them several times a week. I was craving something different from our usual house salad. I looked through the refrigerator and found some kalamata olives and salami along with pine nuts and fresh Parmesan cheese. I used a simple homemade vinaigrette and was so happy with the end result. It was full of flavor and very tasty – my children (and husband) gobbled it up!
- Romaine lettuce
- Fresh baby spinach
- 1 handful of cherry tomatoes
- 1 handful of kalamata olives
- 5-6 slices of salami, quartered
- 1/4 fresh red onion sliced thinly
- Toasted pine nuts
- Fresh Parmesan cheese
- Frans Simple Vinaigrette
Add the pine nuts to a dry skillet over medium heat. Cook stirring frequently until golden brown, remove from heat and let cool.
Mix the romaine and spinach and add the tomatoes, olives, onions, pine nuts and Parmesan cheese, top with Fran’s vinaigrette, toss and serve. Enjoy!
