    Cookgirl's Note:

    Vinaigrette recipe adapted from Best prepared at least one hour in advance of serving. The salad recipe is my quick invention this afternoon to use produce on hand in the refrigerator. I stumbled upon small organic parsnips recently and was very excited to find them! If you cannot find small parsnips (no more than 5" long), you're better off omitting them from the recipe. Created on 4 March 2009.

      Love, love, love this salad and dressing!! I made the recipe as stated with the exception of 2 details: I used shaved carrots in place of the parsnips and I didn't have orange blossom water, so I omitted that ingredient. For the dressing I chose the agave nectar and olive oil options. Yummy!! I really love the subtle orange flavor and the poppyseeds. I'm so glad that I have leftover dressing for future salads. The salad ingreients were a hit, too. I loved the combination of oranges, red onions and black olives. This salad will grace our table for years to come. Thank you! ~Made for Veggie Swap~
