Sometimes we all need short cuts. This is such a simple 2 minute salad, but a nice change from the "romaine or iceberg lettuce salad with Italian or Bleu Cheese dressings." It compliments anything and it equally as good for company as everyday.

Directions

  1. Dressing -- Mix the olive oil, pesto and fresh lemon juice with the pepper and whisk well to combine.
  2. Serve -- I like to add the lettuce to a bowl of ice water just for a couple of minutes to get it "icy cold." Then dry well and plate. You don't have to do the ice bath, but I just love this salad when it is well chilled. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the top and garnish with the grated cheese.
  3. ENJOY!
