Expert Tips

*To toast nuts, cook in an ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.

If bocconcini is not available, substitute 3/4 cup cubed mozzarella cheese.

To re-create the special touch of a fine-dining restaurant, top each salad with freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of sea salt.
