Warm Salad... the name of this recipe causes bile to collect in the top of my esophagus. It's the equivalent of browsing through recipes and seeing... I dunno... dehydrated fish or grilled oatmeal. Not exactly appetizing. But I gave it a shot. And you know what? This salad rocks.
First I combined escarole, red chard, Napa cabbage, and mustard greens in a gigantic pan. As the greens wilted and cooked down, I added more. I halved this recipe and it was still a lot of food! After these cooked down with a skosh of garlic and salt, I laid them out on a platter.
Next I cooked leeks, onion, mushrooms, celery, and cauliflower in the same pan. These cooked down for about 10 minutes. Then I added them to the platter and gently tossed everything together.
I then drizzled some balsamic vinegar, cracked black pepper, and sprinkled parmesan cheese over the whole thing. And low and behold, Warm Salad! It was quite tasty, reminding my dad and I of a new variety of stir fry. I served it with warm sourdough bread "to mop up the juices." Awesome!
