YogaLean Recipe & Retreat Details!
This is my favorite salad! It gives us the healthy fats our body desires, along with a healthy dose of protein to keep us full for a long while. Pine nuts and walnuts are high in iron, which helps regulate the blood circulatory system, and alos have a lot of protein—pine nuts have one of the highest protein levels of all nuts. A little note on this recipe—when toasting nuts, the natural oils are extracted, which adds an incredible depth of flavor that enhances the eating experiences.
What You'll Need:
- 1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
- 1/2 cup pine nuts
- 1/2 cup gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
- head bib lettuce, chopped
- 1 pear, sliced
- 1 apple, sliced
- 2 tablesppons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tablesppons balsamic vinegar
- salt + pepper
Make it Lean:
- In a skillet over medium-high heat, add walnuts and pine nuts. Toast for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, being careful not to burn.
- In the meantime, mix the dressing ingredients.
- In a large bowl, toss the warmed nuts with dressing, cheese, lettuc, pear, and apple
