I start with this salad at most gatherings. And the comments, “This dressing is so good. What’s in it?” Eventually turn into, “So will you please pray for me? Because this day has been hard.” And that’s why food is important.
It answers the question, “Will I eat?” so the bigger questions can be asked. And then we journey together.
You have these ingredients. It’s oil and vinegar. Garlic and Dijon mustard. It’s all things love.
If you have an immersion blender you can add everything together and blend and there it is. Beautiful and bright and ready to reveal the questions in our heart.
I like to keep it simple. I serve it with an Arugula and Spinach mix. It’s peppery and crisp flavor is outstanding with this dressing.
And creamy goat cheese. And dried blueberries or cranberries. And walnuts. So simple.
And we start with this at the beginning of the meal. We serve up salad. And then serve up our hearts to each other.
Thank you for your heart. I’d love to hear your stories of gathering at the table. Please share!Print
