Spin & Toss Tableside Arugula, Persian Cucumber & Heirloon Tomatoes & Walnut Salad
I don't always eat a lot of meat, so this is a way for me to get in some protein via nuts and some good healthy oils too. You can substitue FLAX OIL in place of the Olive Oil to amp up your daily dose of ultra healthy Omega Threes, which is what I generally do and I also make this as a main dish and maybe add in a bit of leftover boneless, skinless cooked chicken breast! Yay! But as it stands, this is a Fun Salad to serve when you are sick of your boring diet routine and want to spice things up with a bit of Tableside Flair!! Hey, can we count this bit in as exercise...har har har!!! (And of course you can literally spice it up with hot pepper sauce or dried peppers to your taste! Go wild!)
Note: Feta or Gorganzola or Good Ole Blue Cheese (or any other (salty/savory/sweet???) firm cheese that strikes your fancy and goes with the ingredients...like Peach Gorganzola Cheese (This Trader Joe's Cheese has little peices of Dried Peaches in it and it's GREAT!!!) will work with this recipe. You can also shave some Parm/Reggie onto each plate too after service. Experiement with your party leftovers from your cheese platter....or just grab what's already there on the shelf in the ole pantry or fridge!!!
