In a medium skillet, combine pine nuts and 1 tablespoon of the oil. Heat over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until toasted, stirring occasionally. Season with kosher salt.
For the dressing, in a small bowl combine shallots, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper. Whisk in remaining oil.
In a large salad bowl toss together lettuce, basil, and cucumber. Add dressing; toss to combine. Add cheese; toss gently to combine. Top with pine nuts and turkey, if desired.
