balancing act

For Christmas this past year, I got a Food Network calendar {I'm obsessed with food, so it's no surprise that some of my favorite cable channels are the Food Network and the Cooking Channel}. Every day there is an interesting food tip and on Fridays there is a recipe for you to try over the weekend.

I thought yesterday's tip was informative. Did you know...

Bitter greens, such as escarole, chicory, dandelion and radicchio, require less acidity from salad dressing - they essentially supply their own. Up the oil and / or lower the vinegar content of your dressing accordingly. These same greens also benefit from dressing with a touch of sweetness; try adding roasted garlic {yum!} or raw shallot to your dressing.
