EveryDay Cooking – Thanksgiving Salad

Published October 19, 2016 by microncat

Continuing on in the new Alton Brown cookbook, EveryDay Cook, last week I made a batch of what Brown calls, “Thanksgiving Salad”.  This consists of sweet potato, quinoa, parsnips, pepitas, onions, and various other things, tossed in a vinaigrette dressing.

In the recipe description, the author states, “This is what Thanksgiving tastes like.”  I have to disagree.  I’m not much of a fan of vinegar, except in certain places, like pickles, or sardines, and I was not a fan of this recipe.  It looks lovely in the bowl, and has great texture, but the vinegar is just too strong.  I think it would be great, if it were made with lemon juice instead of the vinegar in the recipe.
