California Winter Salad


The bounty of SoCal farmer's markets is one of the few reasons I would truly miss Los Angeles. Today, in late December, we picked up burstingly ripe organic yellow and red cherry tomatos--I can only imagine how dejected tomatos look in a New York grocery store right now. Tonight those tomatos joined sauteed baby shiitakes, frozen corn, a little fresh marjoram and tarragon on a bed of mixed greens, topped with a sliced avocado and a drizzle of sherry vinaigrette. Is it really December 17??!?!

We are so spoiled with being able to have such good produce even in the dead of winter! Or not-so-dead...I'm wearing a tank top today, after all.
