This simple salad relies on packaged salad greens that get flavor and crunch from toasted nuts. Preparation of the tasty vinaigrette is streamlined by using a packet of Italian salad dressing mix.—Bonnie Gluhanich, Muskegon, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix
  • 1 package (10 ounces) ready-to-serve salad greens
  • 1/3 cup pecan halves, toasted
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the oil, vinegar, water and salad dressing mix; shake well. In a large salad bowl, combine greens, pecans and Parmesan cheese. Just before serving, shake dressing and pour over salad; toss to coat.
