      This was really good. Next time I would add more vinegar and sun dried tomato paste.

      The dressing definitely makes this salad - It is crisp & a bit tart. The Pine nuts are a gentle flavor enhancer. I added some Maui onion and cucumber to the salad - lovely lunch sitting on the patio

      This was a very good salad. Salad is so versatile, but the dressing was the ticket to this recipe. I had never used Balsamic Vinegar before, and I don't know what I was afraid of. I omitted the chopped tomato in this salad only because I don't like cold tomatoes. I added some red onion slices, because I love them in a salad. And grilled chicken breast, because I made this into a meal. The pinenuts were excellent, and I will definately add them to every salad from here on out. I made extra dressing to have another time. The "greens" that I used were some romaine, and some spinach. That is my favorite combo for salads. DH tasted the dressing and he liked it. He is strictly a bottled French dressing kinda guy. So that in and of itself is a compliment. Thanks for giving me an option to our salad nights.
