Crunchy Walnut Salad

 I saw this idea on "Best Thing I Ever Ate" on Food Network!  I love the use of walnuts that are a good source of mind strengthening omega-3 fatty acids!  I mean they look like little brains!

Given they don't give actual recipes on the show, this is my twist on the dish.

WALNUT TOPPING

In a cast iron skillet over low medium heat:

Equal parts EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL and WALNUT OIL. I added a pinch of KOSHER SALT and splash of LEMON JUICE. Mixed everything then I added CHOPPED WALNUTS.  Cooked just until the walnuts became fragrant, apx 5 minutes.  You just want to toast them.

I added some of the walnut mixture to BIBB LETTUCE and tossed with tongs right away.

QUICK PICKLED RED ONIONS

Slice 1 RED ONION really thin.  In a medium sized bowl combine 1/4 cup WHITE VINEGAR, 3/4 cup WARM WATER, 1/2 tbsp PICKLING SALT, and 1 tsp COCONUT SUGAR. Add red onion.  Allow to sit in pickling mixture for at least 15 minutes.

GRATED CHEESE

In the show they added some cheeze.  Instead I baked some of my tofu/cashew/coconut cheese, froze, then shaved some over salad. 

ASSEMBLY

Top BIBB LETTUCE with PICKLED RED ONIONS and WALNUT TOPPING. Shave CHEESE over.

Enjoy when walnuts are toasty!
