"When we get there, we'll order up a big salad in a wooden bowl, with basil and spinach and fennel and cilantro and radicchio, and we'll have it with olive oil and vinegar and pepper and garlic."- Book of Guys by Garrison
Keillor, Chapter 6, page 138. A funny passage among many funny passages found in Keillor's book published in 1993. Thus begins my odyssey to bring this salad to life- as in life imitating art. Use the freshest ingredients you can find and elaborate on this recipe to your heart's content. Wouldn't fresh parmesan be good in this? Red onion?
