As a “health conscious” eater, you get fucking tired of salads. However, people grow COOL SHIT like red corn, easter egg radishes, yellow beans, and other strange color vegetables. I had no idea what to do with these and hadn’t tried some of them before, so I tested it out in a salad.
Odd Skewer Salad
raw shredded cabbage
one ear of red corn, grilled and dehusked
yellow wax beans, grilled
one block of organic tofu cut into squares
easter egg radishes, with the tails and greens cut off
1 pear, skinned and chopped into squares
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Stick the tofu, pears, radishes, and brussel sprouts on skewers and wrap in foil with a bit of olive oil or grapeseed oil. Cover the brussel sprouts and pears with balsamic vinegar. Bake until they are slightly blackened. Slice the pears into thin rectangles. Toss with the rest of the ingredients. Garnish with sliced almonds if desired.
