Expanding my salad repertoire

highlyunlikely | Feb 22, 202006:54 AM     21

Hi CH'ers! I love salads, particularly the ones listed below - but am hoping to broaden my horizons a bit. Looking for interesting and inspiring salad recipes - warm or cold or room temperature - and/or recipes for just the dressing, as I tend to get stuck in a vinaigrette rut.

Faves (in no particular order - and depends on season):

1. Radicchio and Endive Salad
2. Josh McFadden’s Kale Salad That Started It All
3. April Bloomfield’s Lemon Caper Dressing
4. Eric Korsch’s Dill Vinaigrette
5. Via Carota Red Wine Vinaigrette
6. Epicurious’ [Pearl] Cous Cous Salad with Dates and Almonds https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...
7. Bon Appetit Caesar
8. Ottolenghi’s Na’ama’s Fattoush
9. Barefoot Contessa Bibb Salad with Green Goddess Dressing https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/i...
10. Suzanne Goin’s Tomato Salad with Burrata and Oregano https://threemorebigbites.wordpress.c...
11. 101 Cookbooks’ Warm Harissa Carrots with Lentils, Yoghurt and Fennel https://www.mynewroots.org/site/2016/...
12. Epicurious’ Kale and Brussels Sprouts salad with almonds and pecorino https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...

Next I would like to try this kale salad I had at a restaurant last year - but would love some more recommendations for salads that knock your socks off!
