Bitter + Sweet Salad November 07 2011
I made a sublime salad last night – try it! – baby arugula with some sweet stuff to tame it and no jam in sight! That gnarly green bramble that makes the most graceful diner look awkward needs taming and tampering with something sweet don’t you think? This time of year I buy pomegranates and have big bowls of clementines for their beauty more than any utilitarian use. Last night I scattered segments of clementines and seeds from pomegranates into the greens, added a dose of some good olive oil and squeeze of lemon and created a most sublime treat. The bright colors of deep green, bright orange and red were worthy of some country’s flag and the taste worthy of an independent state!
