Green Salad with Lemony Dressing

A leafy green mixed salad with cheese and a lemony dressing.



  1. Thoroughly wash lettuce and tear into desired size, pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Mix olive oil, most (but not all) of the juice from 1/2 a lemon, 1/2 clove of garlic (minced), and a pinch of red pepper flakes, and whisk together in a large bowl.
  3. Cut cherry tomatoes in half, and place into bowl with dressing. Season with salt and pepper to taste and mix ingredients together so tomatoes are covered in dressing, and let it sit.
  4. While dressing is sitting, toast pine nuts for 1-2 minutes in a skillet over medium heat. As pine nuts are toasting, chop 3 dried apricots and place lettuce and apricots into bowl with cherry tomatoes and dressing.
  5. After salad mixture is coated with dressing, plate salad mixture and top with toasted pine nuts and crumble bits of cheddar cheese (or gorgonzola, blue, parmesan, etc) on top of salad.
  6. Enjoy!
