Anna Watson Carl The Yellow Table

“Salads are one of my favorite foods, and they are endlessly versatile. I love combining fresh, seasonal produce and a nice balance of flavors and textures: a little sweet, a little salty, a little bit of crunch, and a splash of acidity from either citrus or vinegar. And always good extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkling of sea salt. This Warm Goat Cheese Salad is one of my all-time favorites, inspired by my time living in Paris. I combine a mixture of baby lettuces with thinly sliced watermelon radish and green apple, toss with a Dijon shallot vinaigrette, and top with warm goat cheese crostini. I never get sick of this salad!”
