Brunch Salad

with one comment


Here’s the salad I made for a brunch at my aunt’s place last week. I just threw a whole bunch of things together: roasted beets, parsnips, and rutabaga; blanched green beans, beet greens, and carrots; red pepper, celery, and a can each of chickpeas and mixed beans. I made a vinaigrette with caramelised leeks, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, a bit of brown sugar, and salt and pepper. I topped it off with pomegranate seeds, but I wouldn’t do that again, because although I love pomegranate seeds on their own, in this salad their crunch was too unexpected on the teeth.
