A salad of memories...
It's funny how the combination of flavours can bring back certain memories. I remember my first Christmas in New York City. It snowed on Christmas eve and we ran outside in Manhattan with snowflakes falling on our eyelashes. We also went out to a restaurant for Christmas dinner and I remember having a salad that was made of radicchio, blue cheese, pear and hazelnuts. I don't know why but this salad as the starter will always stay with me and everytime I make something similar, it takes me back to that Christmas in New York City, which was well over 10 years ago!
Yesterday, I made a similar salad, however I swapped the blue cheese for feta and made a champagne vinegar and dijon dressing. This salad is filling, crunchy and fresh but will always make me think of Christmas in New York.
