Summer garden salad

Summer garden salad


Lemon vinaigrette
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp. honey
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
Salt and pepper, to taste

4 cups salad greens (your favorite)
1/3 cup toasted and chopped pistachios
1/3 cup shaved Pecorino Toscano
2 nectarines, thinly sliced

Sometimes the simplest of salads have the most to offer. Here, nectarines are the star of the show on a bed of baby greens, with cheese and pistachios to liven things up.


For vinaigrette: Whisk together ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

For salad: Place ingredients in a large bowl and mix together. Drizzle salad dressing on top and plate.  Add extra pistachios on top for garnish, if you wish.

Serves 2 (main course salad)
