Salad doesn’t always feel “wintery” to me, but once the holidays pass and my body can’t take anymore sugar, I just need something fresh. But I also like to eat seasonally, when I can.
This Winter Salad features a lot of vegetables (root and otherwise), shaved super thin, and dressed in a sweet potato dressing with mild hint of curry. Some shaved Manchego (a sheep’s milk cheese) is a great addition, though optional if you prefer to keep it vegan.
I tried this salad last night, and it was so fun! I love how you keep dietary restrictions in mind. Something I learned was, if you don’t have a ton of veggies to work with or not very flavorful ones (I used brussels sprouts, spinach, and carrots), you might want to amp up the seasoning. I added more salt, pepper, and a lot of ground ginger. I also added spicy sausage on it for my non-veggie family.
Looks so delicious!
Yum! Would live to know what mandolin this is as well!
Just came here to say it’s the dressing that looks totally scrumptious. I know it matters what goes in to the salad too, but that dressing! WoW!
Thanks so much, Chris.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
