Warm Winter Salad by Davina Horrocks
The best part about this recipe is that it uses local seasonal ingredients, so you really get a taste of home. Quarter or halve and slice root vegetables thinly, so they are fairly uniformly sized.
Assorted root vegetables of your choice (Six Circles Farm, Lodi)
ex: 1 large beet, 2 purple carrots, 2 orange carrots, and 1 rutabaga
1 medium yellow onion halved and sliced (Six Circles Farm, Lodi)
