Avocado- Pine Nut Salad

Yield: 8 Servings

Prep Time: 15 min

This has been my family's favorite salad recipe for years and years. Every family gathering we have, this salad makes an appearance!

Ingredients:

2 medium vine-ripened tomatoes, chopped
1 head green leaf lettuce, chopped
1 head red leaf lettuce, chopped
1 large avocado, chopped
1/3 cup pine nuts, toasted
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

DRESSING
4 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

1. Place dressing ingredients in shaker jar. Shake well and refrigerate until chilled.

2. Prepare salad ingredients and toss with chilled dressing.

3. Serve immediately.

Tips:

*An easy way to roast raw pine nuts is to dry roast them in a heated saucepan, stirring often so that they do not burn (they burn easily if not watched).
*Grill some chicken and marinate it in the salad dressing for a great summer, main-dish salad!
