Gruyere' Cheese, Toasted Walnut, Craisin Green Salad

Recipe courtesy of Buffy Miller Jackson

6-8 cups clean, dry mixed greens

1 cup walnut pieces, toasted

1/3 cup Gruyere' Cheese shavings

1/2 cup Craisins

To toast the nuts, place them in a single layer in dry saut pan. Toast over medium heat stirring continuously for roughly 5 minutes, until the nuts become very fragrant. Immediately remove the hot pan to cool.

To assemble the salad toss all the ingredients together in a salad bowl and serve with a salad dressing of your choice or my preference, a simple basic vinaigrette.

Basic Vinaigrette:

1 clove fresh garlic, minced super fine

1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard

3-4 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar

1/3-1/2 cup very good Olive Oil

Combine the ingredients in a small jar with a tight fitting lid and shake well to combine. Let sit a few minutes to allow flavors to meld and then drizzle over the salad
