now i love making + eating my salad

I love salad.
Until recently 
I did not like making
or eating it.
My friend Pam
taught me her way to make salad.
Now I'm hooked and
actually enjoy the process and the result
therefore eating more greens.
I guess I was sick of my variation of salad.
I would make same old vinaigrette....
blah blah blah.

Here's what I do now thanks to Pam.

 Grill something....last night it was zucchini
 + grilled chicken breast
toast some pine nuts in a couple tablespoons of EVO.
(I use just this EVO to dress the salad + it's a bit warm which is new trick)
thinly slice raw fennel
 slice red onion
throw it all in bowl with arugula
grated parmesan cheese
squeeze half a lemon on salad.
Add maldon salt and freshly ground pepper.
Toss + toss.
That's it.
Pam's tricks?
Toasted nuts, any kind.
Grated parm.
Just lemon to dress.
Why didn't I think of that?
She promised to teach me some other variations....yay!
