I’m a sucker for seasonal eating.
Not as in choosing my fruits and vegetables based on what is in season…I’m not that cool.
But as in, I want my food to be warm and cozy right now.
This time of year is for soups and chilis and apple cider. For pumpkin and pecans and molasses. But it leaves the salad loving part of me in quite a pickle. If you didn’t know, I love a good salad, and not just one with a lettuce base. Cucumber salad, farro salad, tabouleh, pasta salad….I really havent met a salad I don’t like. But right now, a cold, chopped salad is just not cutting it.
So lets take some simple, flavorful ingredients, warm ‘em up and mix ‘em up and call it a winter salad, yes?
