I’m not sure this bleu cheese pignoli salad actually counts as a recipe… it’s more of an inspiration. I love to grow alfalfa sprouts, and they crown this salad beautifully.
|WHAT YOU NEED||WHAT TO DO||WHY|
||For the Ranch Dressing: Whisk all together in a 1-cup bowl.
Tip: Cut a lemon in half at the equator; place cut sides down and quarter. Juice with a citrus squeezer held over a mesh strainer to catch seeds.
|Mayonnaise acts as an emulsifier (an agent that helps prevent the separation of other ingredients).|
||Rinse and spin greens dry in a salad spinner; divide between bowls. Drizzle with Ranch Dressing; sprinkle with pignoli and then crumble bleu cheese over the top. Place a bunch of sprouts at the crown… otherwise sprinkle with a few dried cranberries.||Wet greens dilute the dressing.|
