Fall salad where you mix raw ingredients, roasted ones, cheeses and a sweet and sour sauce : my kind of salad. This one is really perfect, filling, full of textures and flavors.
My husband HATES wheat in this form but he did say that the salad was super delicious so I guess it is a really good one! With all the textures, you can taste the wheat but it is not overpowering. The dressing with cider vinegar is the perfect match to those ingredients, I think you’ll love it.
