Winter Salad Recipe

To toast pine nuts, place on a cookie sheet and bake at 375F(!()C) for 5 minutes. The dressing is low calorie and it will keep for a week.

Step 1

Strip spinach from its ribs and tear into bite sized pieces. Place in large salad bowl. Tear radicchio into bite sized pieces and add to spinach.
