Hey gorgeous people! I can't take credit for this one but if you want to show off with a pretty, DETOXIFYING and EASY dish this Easter weekend, this is just the thing! Provided by the master chef from Pure Market Express (see yesterday's post for link.)
Passionate Pansy Salad
4 cups mixed greens
1/4 cup fresh sprigs of dill
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
4 large basil leaves, rolled up and thinly sliced crosswise
1 large lemon, halved
Pinch of salt
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
1 cup chopped raw walnuts
1 heaping tablespoon pine nut parmesan
1 cup fresh pansy flowers
Toss salad greens and herbs in a large bowl. Squeeze lemon juice (without the seeds) over the greens and season with salt and pepper. Toss again. Add walnuts and pine nut parmesan and toss well. Divide salad and pansies among four serving plates and serve.
** BONUS: Pine nut parmesan is super easy and before you know it, you'll be sprinkling it on EVERY thing! Whiz 1/4 c pine nuts, 1 large clove of garlic and one heaping tablespoon of nutritional yeast in a Magic bullet or food processor until you have the texture of parmesan cheese and sprinkle to your hearts delight. ;0)
I love this dish warm. Put it in your oven or in a sauce pan at low heat until it is warm to the touch. Warm your stomach and your heart!
