Meat Lite: Warm Winter Salad
Editor's note: Philadelphia food writers Joy Manning and Tara Mataraza Desmond drop by each week with Meat Lite, which celebrates meat in moderation. Meat Lite was inspired by the book coauthored by the two, Almost Meatless, due out in spring.
In the summer, I eat a huge fresh salad once or twice a week thanks to the mountains of crisp, fresh lettuce I get in my CSA box. But in the winter, I'm afraid salads usually go the way of sweet corn and peaches. This year, I refuse to acquiesce to a salad-less season. This week's Meat Lite combines a huge pile of seasonal veggies (Brussels sprouts and butternut squash) with savory year-round staples to get a healthy, hearty, and warm salad perfect for these cold weather months.
