Winter Salad

Special salad
I love a good salad.  This is a salad that I put together based on what was in the fridge.  It has become a favorite this winter.  The amount of each ingredient is all based on how many people you are having so I am just going to list the items.

Mixed Greens

Brussel Sprouts – cut in half and pan fried

Broccolli Rabe – chopped and pan fried

Acorn Squash – cut squash in half, scoop out seeds, slice into 1/4" pieces, mix with olive oil and kosher salt and bake at 350 until browned.  Put it on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Sliced almonds

Manchego cheese – shaved

Pomegranite seeds


1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard, 3 Tbsp. White Balsamic Vinegar, 1 Tbsp. Soy Sauce, 1 tsp. Honey, 1/2 cup of more of Olive Oil.  Take all the ingredients and whisk. Slowly add in the oilve oil continuing to whisk until the dressing get thick.  Add kosher salt for taste.
