½ cup pistachios, toasted, cooled and chopped
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
2 each Egg whites
Salt & pepper to taste

For a light lunch salad, serve with fresh greens, tomatoes and baby beets with a lemon and herb vinaigrette. Chef Bill serves this dish with grilled asparagus and a wild onion and ramp quinoa risotto with buerre blanc sauce. This dish will be equally delicious with a side of roasted sweet potatoes, pasta or wild rice and a seasonal vegetable.
