The first frost (well in my garden) is here! I've spent sometime this weekend trying to come up with easy warm salad recipes for dinner during the week. I know winter time is a time for hearty stews, but I think sometimes its a bit too hearty for dinner.
For a warm salad, I thought of having the meat just freshly cooked or warm roasted vegetables.
# 1 - Warm root vegetable salad - using a melon baller, scoop out the warm sweet potato. Then mix in with carrots, red onions & parsnips which were roasted with rosemary and honey. Mix together with some balsamic or redwine or raspberry vinegarette
#2 - Romaine lettuce and red peppers, mixed with pan fried chicken & pine nuts. Drizzle over basil oil (basil & garlic blitzed with warm olive oil)
I would love some other suggestions. (I have a few more, will post later)
