The Dish

Simple Stellar Salad

If you’ve been to my house, you have likely had a variation on this salad. Each week, I stock up from Maggie’s Farm at the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market on the “Stellar Mix” which I adore for the colorful and addictive combination of edible Nasturtium flowers, dill, chives and leafy greens. (You can also find a variation of this mix at the Pacific Palisades’ Farmers’ Market on Sundays.)

Ingredients:

Note: I  have not added quantities as it should be to taste and depends on number of servings.

Stellar Mix Salad, or if not available near you, a bag of Spicy Mix greens from Trader Joe’s and add edible Nasturtium flowers for color

Handful of crumbled Goat Cheese

Handful of Pine Nuts

Optional: Diced Avocados and/or Heirloom Tomatoes when in peak season

Dressing: Lemon Juice whisked with a pinch of Salt and high quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil (I like California Ranch Olive Oil found at many grocery stores.)

Directions:

Place first 4 ingreditents in a salad bowl and add a pinch of sea salt and pepper.

Lightly toss with salad dressing and serve.
