Escarole, cauliflower, almonds, and gruyere…Go! Okay so maybe I watch Chopped a little too often, but I can’t help how much it inspires me to get creative and think outside the box. Whenever I look into the fridge and see miss-matched remnants I take it as a challenge to create something delicious!

Cauliflower is a great vegetable to eat during this time of year as it is still in season, and is a filling component when added to a salad. Because it tends to be a bit bland when raw, I decided it best to par-boil it to enhance the flavor and mouth feel. The acidity of the dressing goes well with the nuttiness of the almonds and creaminess of the cauliflower. Lastly, using a sturdy lettuce like escarole, radicchio, or kale is optimal in a warm salad as it holds up to the heat of the cauliflower without becoming soggy.

Because oxygen consumption translates into body energy, low levels of iron and oxygen can lead to significant health problems. Here are some symptoms and health concerns that could result from low iron: Read More
