Well, I've never had shallots prepared this way before. The boiled shallots, barely cooked veggies and raw arugula blend very well together and the sauce is wonderful and accents the gentle savoriness of the shallots nicely. I served it to my sister and BIL tonight and they were very impressed. Thanks, Mordreth!
Delicious and so adaptable to what is on hand too! I used just shallots, cauiflower (one head), and brocolli along with spinach (instead of rocket) making this a great salad for winter. I didn't have thyme honey so I used regular honey and threw in a good sprinkling of dried thyme-- salad was sweet and delicious! In the spring I want to try this with asparagus and some spring-time veggies for a change of pace. Thanks for sharing!
