Here are a couple of winter salads to enjoy when more tender greens like lettuces and mesclun are out of season.
1/3 head of celery, sliced across the stems
1/2 head of celeriac, julienne slice
1 head of Belgian endive, sliced
1/4 bunch of Italian parsley, coarse chop
1/4 sweet onion or to taste, sliced very thinly
1/2 head of fennel, sliced
Toss all of the vegetables with a simple fresh lemon juice and olive oil dressing. Season with salt and pepper.
This was a very light and refreshing salad, enough for 4 servings.
Equal amounts of thinly sliced:
chopped Italian parsley
Toasted salted sunflower seeds
Grated cheese ( whatever you have in the house )
A simple Balsamic dressing with a bit of honey mixed in
Toss your vegetables with the sunflower seeds, cheese and dressing and serve.
