    Cookgirl's Note:

    From Hell's Backbone Grill as printed in Delicious Magazine. “Salt Lake Magazine recognized this salad as one of the best in the state, and it’s easily our most requested recipe,” say Jen and Blake of Hell's Backbone Grill. “We top our salad with seasonal fruit from local orchards. As always, the freshest, locally grown, organic ingredients make a world of difference.” I substituted blueberries for strawberries and baby white turnips for jicama among several other small changes and revisions to the original recipe.

    • 1/2 cup toasted pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds)

      I really enjoyed this salad. I did make a few changes. I was not able to get fresh strawberries, so used dried cranberries and also frozen corn. I halved the recipe and have a little dressing for later. Made for Veg. swap March 2013.
