This salad is a go-to for me when I need something quick and delicious. The flavors go well with just about any protein. I make the dressing right in the bottom of a large bowl and then toss the greens in it. It makes for super easy cleanup at the end of the night!

The toasted pine nuts give a really lovely texture and buttery flavor to the salad. It is super easy to toast them too. Just heat a skillet over low heat and add the pine nuts straight into the pan (no oil is needed). The natural oils from the pine nuts will release and help them toast. Just keep and eye on them and stir around occasionally until they are a beautiful golden color, then remove from pan. It takes about 5 minutes in total.
