A Little Holiday Jewel of a Salad

One week away….the Holidays officially start with loads of heavy, delicious foods…mains and sides (my favorite part of the meals), desserts…put on repeat. A month of meals.

Consider this little jewel of a salad to be a segue, an interlude, maybe a palate cleanser, definitely a colorful, shiny seasonal edible. It has crunch, color and citrus, freshness and a healthy-feel goodness.

There is no “real” recipe and you can improvise if need be. But here is how I made this.

Chilled shredded Radicchio in the bottom of the bowl topped with Cara Cara oranges, cubes Jicama and Pomegranate Ariels lightly drizzled with a simple vinaigrette.

You could have this for lunch one day between those heavier Holiday meals. Or, just slip it in the mix and build it in a large salad bowl served along with those yummy sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts?

However you spend your Holidays this year…with or without a mask, in a large or small gathering, with family and friends, or just by yourself relaxing and Netflix bingeing, be kind, share and be well.

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
