A salad that is perfect for Winter to show my sympathy for my snowed in friends on the East Coast….
Our last Winter in Connecticut was a lot like the one my East Coast friends are having right now.
So much snow. It never melts and you are running out of places to shovel it.
I feel for you guys. I really do.
In this salad shredded kale, snow peas, cabbage and carrots are topped with edamame and toasted almonds, plus a orange ginger miso dressing. It is perfect for Winter because it doesn’t have ingredients that are hard to find in cold places, but it also has a sunny Asian spin on it. Dress and toss your salad just a few minutes before eating to let it wilt the kale just a bit.
Hopefully this salad can help you think warm thoughts. It’s almost Spring!
