Recipe 10: salad as a meal challenge

Even though the katsura are blooming and the days are longer, the vegetables of late spring and early summer have yet to hit the markets. Here in Seattle winter greens and root vegetables are still in abundance which makes this salad of beet root, watercress, and endive perfect for right now. This is salad is peppery from the cress, crunchy from the endive, and sweet from the beets. Perfect for early April.

  5. You inspired me to seed a lot more lettuce this year. Still enjoying the mache left over from the winter - but I think its days are numbered.
