Today is Christmas Eve, and most people who intend to cook and entertain have long figured out the side dishes and salads that will enhance their main course. Except, perhaps, you?
The clock’s a tickin’ so here’s a salad you can throw together in 10 minutes – it will look as festive as a sprig of mistletoe.
Crumbled goat cheese or feta would be a grand touch and look as if snow flakes had fallen on the salad. And, of course, you could substitute strawberries for raspberries, arugula leaves for spinach and a good olive oil for the walnut oil if desired. Toasted almonds, walnuts and pecans are great additions…but I digress. The idea is to keep it simple yet festive, right?
Here are some more elaborate side salad creations from past blogs…
