It's been a while since I've shared something from the "spatula" side of this blog's title, and while I have some more kids clothes posts in the works I thought I would just quickly post this in the midst, since it was really yummy and is just perfect for fall. And I want to keep track of the recipe for myself for the future!
This salad was inspired by one from Whole Foods, but I added the almonds and I didn't actually look at their ingredient list so it may differ in other ways. The orange juice and sherry vinegar balance each other well, giving it a bit of sweetness but also enough acidity. I just threw it together, so this is actually less a recipe with formal amounts than a general idea, but it should be enough of an idea to recreate it I think.
- Dried bulgur wheat (or grain of your choice)
- Dried cranberries
- Kale (smaller/more delicate leaves are preferable if possible)
- Slivered almonds
- Shallots (or red onion)
- Olive oil
- Orange juice
- Sherry vinegar (or red wine vinegar)
- Salt to taste
