GFF's House Salad

This salad reminisces the simply soulful flavor of legendary San Francisco jazz singer Faith Winthrop’s cooking. Add a smidge of crushed garlic to the dressing if desired, but definitely toast extra walnuts; stored at room temperature in a tightly sealing container, they’re great to grab and use anytime.

  • 1/3 cup walnut pieces
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free Dijon mustard
  • Kosher salt
  • 8 cups mixed spring lettuce
  • Flesh of 1 avocado cut into cubes
  • 12 cherry tomatoes


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the walnuts on a baking sheet in a single layer and toast until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Let cool.

  2. In a salad bowl, use a fork to whisk together the oil, vinegar, and mustard. Season to taste with salt. Add the lettuces, avocado, walnuts, and cherry tomatoes. Toss to coat and serve.
