I bought a rutabaga last night and wanted to mash it, but then thought why not do something different? Didn't add any dried fruit in my version, but very happy with apple-rutabaga combination! Threw in some chopped pecans and sunflower seeds too. Thank you for your recipe. :)
I subbed barberries for the raisins and served the salad over mixed greens. The salad dressing was fiddely and for some reason the ingredients wouldn't mix well and not much eye appeal to the dressing (although we liked it.) A meyer lemon replaced standard lemon. The rutabaga was so small and impossible to peel that I finely grated it without any problems. I think I would not serve the salad over greens next time either. It would be better on its own. Made for Veg Tag and SUN and SPICE Event/February.
