Place the chopper attachment into the Manual Kitchen Kit, along with all of the salad dressing ingredients. Once the basil is chopped, replace the chopper with the mixer and beat the dressing for a couple of minutes. Set aside.

Rinse your greens and let them dry.

We use our Weston Cone Strainer to rinse and drip-dry our salad greens

Attach the mandoline slicer to the Weston Kitchen Kit with the straight blade attached. Use this to slice your strawberries, radishes, and ramps.

Replace the straight blade with the grating plate on the mandoline. Use this to grate your beets and carrots.

Remove the mandoline and put the chopper back into the Manual Kitchen Kit. Use this to chop up your greens.

Ready to serve! Don't forget to sprinkle with pine nuts and cranberries.
