Things are a bit hectic. But I just wanted to say—isn't it wonderful out there today? I'll take 58 and sunny any day, even if it is December. And also, if you're not completely averse to bitter, if it doesn't make you pucker up even hours later in your sleep, like it does Alex, you might like this salad. I ripped it out from the December 2014 issue of Bon Appetit and have been eating the leftovers for almost a week, even now that the avocados are brown and squishy. Alex and I disagree about a lot of things, though luckily not the important ones, and bitter is one we approach from very different places. I love it; he can't even stomach dark chocolate. So! If you're in his camp, I'm sorry, but if you're in mine, you're in for a treat.


This dressing recipe makes about twice as much as you need for the salad, but it's an excellent dressing for all sorts of sturdy fall salads and keeps well. (It would also be nice drizzled over steamed veggies and rice.) As for the salad, it looks the prettiest on day one, but it's still good for eating for several days.

1/4 cup tahini
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons minced, peeled fresh ginger
1 teaspoon Sriracha
1/2 cup olive oil
salt and pepper
1/2 pound mixed bitter greens, such as frisee, escarole, radicchio, and endive
1 clementine, peeled, seeded, and each slice halved
1/2 fennel bulb, shaved
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
1 Asian pear, thinly sliced
1 avocado, thinly sliced
runny honey, for drizzling

First make the dressing. Mix the tahini, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, Sriracha, and olive oil. Shake well and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Toss the greens, celemtine, fennel, cilantro, mint, and pear with the dressing in a large shallow bowl. Top with the avocado and a drizzle of honey.

Huge thanks for this recipe! It looks like haute cuisine, I ate a similar salad in one of the most expensive restaurants in Paris, and you revealed the secret of its preparation in your recipe, expressing your respect to you. Have you guessed what ingredients you need to use, or have you spied this information somewhere? :) I will definitely prepare the same for myself. I also wanted to point out that the cooking photos look incredibly professional! I think you should share them on Instagram and they will definitely get a lot of likes. I saw a couple of similar posts the other day and they mostly had from 30 thousand likes! I am sure their authors used https://soclikes.com/buy-instagram-likes to wind them up.
