Here’s a quick, simple salad that I devoured this morning for breakfast. It’s got crunchy little white radishes, light soft kale, and crisp pears, and it’s great for any time of the day. Today I got to eat it outside, without having to wear a jacket or anything!
And if that weren’t enough reason to celebrate, we also found out this weekend that we’re nominated for Best Original Recipes in the Saveur Best Food Blog Awards!! We’d be honored if you voted for us, right here, and also be sure to vote for our other favorite vegan bloggers, Oh Ladycakes (for Best Special Diets blog), V.K. Rees (for Best Photography) and Thug Kitchen (for Best New Blog).
Now, onto the recipe :)
Over the winter I’ve been falling in love with sour foods. Citrus are the easiest to identify: lemons, limes, grapefruit - but also cranberries, vinegars, and fermented and pickled foods. I’ve always eaten too much sugar and soda, so when I wanted to stop consuming (at times) 10 or 20 times the recommended amount of sugar every day, I went sour. What I found wasn’t unpleasant, as you would normally think these foods are, it was a whole new sense that I had never explored, and I’m so glad I did.
