Hi, hi! Are we all still sticking to our resolutions and trying to eat more veggies? If so, I am your new best friend. Because there has never, ever, ever been a better way to get your greens AND veggies than this gorgeous Winter Salad.
It gives me great joy to send you lovely people healthy dishes with amazing flavor that can be on the table in 30 minutes. It is the ultimate trifecta! Meet your new weeknight, I can’t eat one more bag salad, dinner lifesaver.
Just look at it – it’s so pretty and colorful and good for you! Peppery arugula, caramelized roast carrots, nutty toasted pine nuts, a pop of tangy sweet pomegranate seeds and creamy, decadent burrata cheese. I pretty much want this to be my lunch every day until summer. And maybe then too.
Aside from being my lunch of dreams, it’s a great side dish or a full dinner with a little sliced grilled chicken or steak on top. Maybe a scoop of farro or quinoa mixed in. Winter salad: lunch, side, dinner. I so love versatility. And did I mention it can be on the table in 30 minutes….?
We cut the carrots pretty small so they roast in about 20 minutes which is about all you need to mix up our quick French vinaigrette (in a mason jar no less) no whisk required, and toast your pine nuts. Then you simply assemble your winter salad. Easy, peasy.
