Today we have Chef Mary Steiger from the Gourmet Girls Gluten Free Bakery/Bistro. On News 4 Cooks we made a Warm Wilted Winter Salad with crunchy pine nut lemon topping.
Here's the recipe:
½ cup honey
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1 pint walnuts
6 bunches assorted winter greens, washed, stemmed and torn in pieces
2 Tablespoons grainy mustard
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 cup pomegranate seeds
Cook honey and balsamic together over medium-high heat in a large saute pan, about 5 minutes. Toast walnuts, set aside to cool.
Pile greens on a platter. Stir mustard into dressing, then whisk in about 1 cup extra virgin olive oil, pour over greens to wild. Season greens with salt and pepper and garnish with walnuts, pomegranate seeds and herbed crumbs. Serve warm.
