  1. Run a fork down the length of the cucumber to create thin stripes. Cut cucumber into thin slices.
  2. Mix cucumber, iceberg lettuce, romaine, tomatoes, and chicory together in a large bowl. Add olive oil and balsamic vinegar; toss to coat. Season with Italian seasoning, lemon juice, celery seed, garlic salt, pepper, and ginger.
  3. Garnish salad with pignoli and Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You don't want a mushy salad so make sure all lettuce is dry. Add other ingredients 10 to 15 minutes before you are ready to serve or lettuce will wilt.
