Bitter Greens

Saturday, October 13th, 2012

More fall menu changes in the mix.  The “Diosa Verde” salad takes a seat on the bench to make way for our fall salad of bitter greens – radicchio, escarole and watercress.  Pomegranate and Fuyu persimmons, both recently in season, add some sweetness and bright color – shaved Manchego and spiced pepitas provide addition accents.  My friend David likes to warn me not to fall victim to what he calls “self-referenced criteria”, but in this case I can’t help myself.  Every ingredient in this salad is in the upper tier of my favorite foods.  I could eat this salad nightly and probably will almost do so.  And I can’t help but believe I won’t be alone in the pleasure I derive from this salad…
