CRUNCHY WINTER SALAD
This salad is a super clean out your refrigerator solution. Perfect for after the holidays or anytime. All of the vegetables can be found locally or grown in your own winter garden. The Yacon is grown on the Neucomb Family Farm in Willow Creek and available during the winter months at the Northcoast Coop. It has the texture of jicama; although not as sweet, and looks like a potato. This salad can be made with the suggested vegetables listed below or feel free to be creative with any veggies to your liking.
1 head of lettuce, chiffonade (cut into thin strips)
2 carrots, grated
1 medium sized Yacon, ¼ inch slices and cut in half
3 radishes, 1/8 inch slices and quartered
1 stalk celery, diced
1 small red onion, diced
½ cup broccoli
Combine all the vegetables in a medium sized salad bowl.
½ cup olive oil
3 Tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar
2 Tablespoons honey
1 clove garlic, flattened with broad side of a knife
2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
Combine all ingredients in a blender and serve over salad.
