Delicious salad despite being very basic and simple!! We have a chain restaurant here in Florida called "Bonefish Grill" and their house salad includes pine nuts and that is where I found I love toasted pine nuts in salads, so good, definitely don't skip them!!! I wasn't sure what Cos lettuce was so I clicked on the highlight and found: it's said to have originated on the Aegean island of Cos, romaine is also called Cos lettuce, learn something new everyday, lol!!! Thanks for sharing a great salad recipe. Made for ZWT9.
