I see these recipe titles and roll my eyes and then just…write them anyway just like everyone else, right? Such a sheep.
Anyway. Winter salad. Maybe because of kale because it’s heartier? This-here salad has zero ingredients that are winter-specific, but somehow all together they feel a little cozier than a lighter salad….maybe something with no rice makes a summer salad?
I’m overthinking this.
ANYWAY. Jay and I were watching ye olde Foot Network, as we do, a few weeks ago, and Bobby Flay made something like this on a Thanksgiving special. Kind of like this, not really. And it looked delicious, and Jay was all Regina George “I wanna lose three pounds….” so I set out to make a salad with rice and call it a winter salad.
And so I did.
