Winter Salad Blues: Arugula with Radish, Manchego & Dates
I have the winter salad blues.
Nothing is blooming, or growing or happy and green.
I have 3 little watermelon radishes left from my harvest, then they are all gone, and I will have to wait till April to see any signs of life.
Here is a delicious salad using what I always have on hand.
I love Manchego cheese here (a Spanish sheep's milk cheese), it goes so well w/ the apples.
You can use regular radishes if you can't find watermelon radishes, and I bet you can't :(
Arugula Salad w/ Radish, Manchego & Dates:
head of arugula, washed and dried
2 radishes, sliced super skinny
2 green onions, sliced
4 Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
1 Granny Smith apple, skin on, sliced thin
hunk of Manchego cheese, diced
squeeze of lemon juice
pinch of sea salt
2 tbsp olive oil
It's pretty self explanatory. It's a salad.
Mix some spicy gorgeous arugula (I am really reaching today!) with sliced apples, chopped dates, the Manchego cheese and sliced scallions.
Whisk up the lemon juice w/ the olive oil and sea salt and pour over salad components.
Mix and serve immediately.
Pretty delicious, if I do say so.
