Today's GOOD Lunch recipe was prepared by Isis Krause. It was passed down from her grandmother to her mother to me—and now to all of you!
Cost: $20 ($2 per serving) Prep Time: 20 minutes Taste: 4 stars Mâche is a deliciously sweet and nutty lettuce with very small leaves. You can find this lettuce all over the country now, but if you can’t get hold of it, you can substitute butter lettuce. This is a really light salad, but the many flavors in the dressing with the creamy avocado and tangy grapefruit make it a very satisfying midday meal. We added a California twist to this traditional German classic with the addition of grapefruit and avocado—feel free to add any fruits or roasted vegetables that are seasonal for you. This salad is great with a hunk of bread on the side.
Every Tuesday and Thursday in 2011, the GOOD team is cooking and sharing a big bowl of healthy, vegetarian, seasonal soup or salad. This time last week we were enjoying Morrocan Roasted Chickpea Quinoa Salad.
