winter salad

Crisp, red-leaf greens + cilantro leaves + chopped scallions (plus the green part). Roasted sweet potato chunks (in olive oil, sea salt, pepper). Candied pecans (chopped nuts + 2 tbsp evaporated cane sugar on the stove until caramelized and fragrant) - courtesy of my Aunt Toni's tree!

P.S. Crumbled feta cheese, too. Not local - from Israel!

P.P.S. Citrusy dressing: 1/2 orange (squeezed) + 2 pinches salt + 1 tbsp red wine vinegar + 1 garlic clove (squashed) + generous dollop dijon mustard + 1 tsp maple syrup. Whisk while adding olive oil in a steady stream until it reaches a good consistency.
