Tri-Color Chopped Salad with Pine Nuts and Parmesan Cheese

Tri-Color Chopped Salad with Pine Nuts and Parmesan Cheese


"This salad has become a staple of my kitchen. I like that it is a chopped salad, a technique that virtually ensures each bite will include every ingredient. There is something magical about the pine nut and Parmesan combination, a fact that will not be lost on pesto lovers. This is one of those rare recipes that justifies the expense of imported Parmigiano-Reggiano."

When I make a recipe and enjoy it so much that I say to myself, "Ooooh, I've GOT to remember this one!" that's a 5-star recipe. And this is one of those recipes. This inarguably has a definite...

This was very good and a nice change of pace. You need to like your salads with a bite, though--all the lettuces are bitter greens. It tastes pretty mustardy at first, so I'd suggest letting it ...

I like the idea of this, but it's far too bitter for our tastes. If you want to add something to perk it up from all that bitterness substitute some lettuce like butter lettuce or a red leaf let...

Excellent! I could not find just arugula so I substituted a pre-washed blend of arugula & baby spinach (by Organic Girl) and it was great. I let the dressing "sit" for a bit on the lettuces and ...

a great salad...this one has become one of my faves-the toasted pine nuts and fresh oregano makes this amazing!

Good, different salad

Everyone loved this slightly bitter salad, especially the gentlemen! Easy to make and the lovely colors make it look fantastic!
