The Sweet/Savory Crunchy/Smooth Salad

This recipe is my favorite salad. And that’s quite a compliment coming from a carb-loving chocoholic. The secret is all the contrasting flavors and textures. The tangerines are sweet, and the white beets are savory. The avocado is smooth, and the pine nuts are crunchy. Even the aged balsamic vinegar and basil olive oil each […]
