Notes

A simple salad that goes well with many meals, especially italian ones!

Feel free to add other grated veggies (rabioles, cabbage or carrots) and even fruits (sliced apples or pears, fresh raspberries or pomegranate seeds). Hey, you can also try adding roasted nuts!

When I make it, I often add 1 tbsp of Dijon mustard to the vinaigrette and it tastes great too! FYI, this is also delicious with a simple balsamic-oil vinaigrette.

A dash of local for every season
