Mache and Herb Power Salad
- 4 cups mache or mixed baby greens
- 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
- 1/2 cup basil leaves
- 1/4 cup strong fresh herbs, such as chives, chervil, tarragon or dill
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup pine nuts or slivered almonds, toasted
In a large bowl, combine the greens, parsley, basil and other herbs. Put the vinegar in a small bowl and, whisking constantly, slowly drizzle in the olive oil in a thin stream. Season the vinaigrette with salt and pepper.
Dress the salad with the vinaigrette, tossing to coat the leaves. Sprinkle the nuts on top and serve.
