Calories
Ingredients
  
  • 1/4 cup pinenuts
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 1 small shallot
  • 1/2 jalapeño (seeded for less spice)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp seasoned rice wine vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp chopped green onion
  • 2 squeezed limes
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt (more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 cup parm cheese

Salad

  • 1 head of leafy lettuce
  • 2 large cucumbers (diced)
  • 6 chopped green onions
Instructions
 
  • Slice up leafy greens into thin ribbons.

Prepare your salad toppings:

  • Quarter and cube up the cucumbers. We love to use our fullstar vegetable chopper because it makes prep super fast! But you can easily chop up your cucumbers by hand.
  • Slice scallions into 1/4 inch cylinders.

Make your salad dressing:

  • Place pine nuts, fresh basil, a small shallot, jalapeño, garlic, and chopped green onions into a food processor.
  • Use a citrus juicer or hand reamer to squeeze the juice from two limes into the food processor.
  • Pour in olive oil and your choice of vinegar.
  • Sprinkle on salt and add the shredded parmesan cheese.
  • Blend the ingredients together in your food processor until the ingredients are combined.
  • Add your chopped lettuce to a bowl, top with cucumbers and green onions and pour the dressing over.
  • Mix it together using tongs and voila! You have a delicious salad!
