It seems so simple and almost boring. This is one of the best salads I have ever experienced. Enjoy!
1 cup walnuts
1.5 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
freshly ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
8 large stalks celery with leaves, thinly sliced
2 ounces good parmesan cheese, grated or shaved
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread walnuts in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Toast, tossing once halfway through until nuts are golden, 7-10 minutes. Cool and coarsely chop.
- In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, salt and pepper and then the oil. Combine the walnuts and celery and cheese in large bowl. Add dressing and toss.
