Spring has indeed sprung and its unsettling clouds of golden pollen have left me a bit under the weather; however, I am relying on the season's newly harvested green vegetables to keep my immune system and energy in check. In the winter season I truly believe my body thrives on warm foods and spices, but come springtime I crave cool salads and fresh raw veggies. It is as if my body's own thermal shift sends a signal to my inner cravings, dictating what my body needs to regulate and be satisfied.
This simple salad is made with Spring's delicately young jewels: asparagus, radish, spring onion, beets and tossed with a light meyer lemon vinaigrette. For an additional crunch I added salty marcona almonds, do not skip this ingredient or you will be sorry!
So for those of you pining for lighter fair I hope this colorful salad satiates your longing, and for those of you striving to eat seasonally this dish is a delicious first step.
Lastly, I want to thank you all again for the outpouring of encouragement and enthusiasm regarding my skin care posts! I am looking forward to bringing more "lifestyle" into Roost, and your kind words have given me fire in my belly to stay motivated and pour more of myself into this creative haven. Each and every note and comment was lovingly read and appreciated.
