Even just the thought of lettuce and tomatoes salad in winter makes you feel cold…
So a blanched salad of carrots and greens with all kinds of toppings will (hopefully) make you warm…
- 2 carrots (cut into long thin pieces)
- Any greens (cavolo nero, green cabbage, kale, winter greens) cut small
- Olive oil, lemon juice and a pinch of salt
- Topping: nuts (walnuts, almonds) seeds (pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds)
Cut the veg and blanch in batches (blanching is quick boiling just to cook the veg a in very little water with a some salt for 3-4 minutes. Add the oil, lemon and salt to taste and the topping.
