Scroll for some of our favorite ‘lean and green’ salads, plus a few wine pairings.
Our ‘farm to table’ friends at Dish Society in Houston are packing the greens in that ‘Super Sprouts’ salad above, featuring Brussels sprouts, shredded kale, organic quinoa, dried cherries, golden raisins, shaved almonds and parmesan with a house-made honey vinaigrette.
Crispy Brussels Sprouts Salad
We love Chef John Russ’ Crispy Brussels Sprouts salad that’s packed with LOTS of greens! It features thin slices of green apples, fresh mint and lots of Brussels sprouts. Try this salad with La Ciboise Luberon (More details on this wine here).
Cherry Tart Arugula Salad
There are loads of ‘lucky charms’ hidden in this Cherry Tart Arugula Salad — like dried cherries, Swiss chard and spicy Texas pecans! It’s made by our friends at Vinaigrette in Austin, who we featured in our second season of Goodtaste with Tanji (watch here).
Kale & Pancetta Salad
Unlike most salads, this Kale & Pancetta Salad by Chef Ryan Hildebrand in Houston is served warm! It’s dressed in a seriously tasty Kalamata Vinaigrette. Try the Josh Pinot Gris with this salad — an amazing wine buy for just $13 a bottle! (More details on this wine here).
