Welcome » Bleu Cheese Pignoli Salad

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. Great flavor doesn’t have to be complicated. Know what you like, and bring together those combinations. If you love bleu cheese, a few crumbled ounces can add a burst of flavor to a salad, a burger, or even open-faced sandwiches. Get creative!

Bleu Cheese Pignoli Salad Recipe

  • Servings: 4
  • Calories per: 178
  • Active Time: 15 min
  • Total Time: 15 min
  • Difficulty: Easy
WHAT YOU NEED WHAT TO DO WHY
  • 1/3 cup plain whole milk yogurt
  • 1/4 cup real mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
For the Ranch Dressing: Whisk all together in a 1-cup bowl. Mayonnaise acts as an emulsifier (an agent that helps prevent the separation of other ingredients).
  • 4-5 cups finely chopped Romaine lettuce
  • ¼ cup toasted pignoli (pine nuts)
  • ⅓ cup bleu cheese
  • Alfalfa sprouts or dried cranberries
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.
