Chopped Green Salad with Macadamia Nut Oil
I hesitate to call any food my favorite, but I could eat this salad all day, every day. It’s dressed with Macadamia nut oil and fresh lemon juice which allows the raw flavors of the other ingredients to shine through. The sautéed and seasoned almonds add just the right amount of additional flavor. This salad is fresh and crunchy and oh so good! You will love it. Enjoy!
