I made this simple salad for my Husband’s Birthday dinner this year—a perfect accompaniment to grilled lamb chops and a hearty side of roasted potatoes and mushrooms with sage, rosemary and crumbled goat cheese. Very French in nature, this salad recipe is courtesy of the great Jacques Pepin. Simply grated carrots mixed with roasted sunflower seeds, scallions and a touch of garlic; all served with a light apple cider vinaigrette and over delicate red leaf lettuce leaves. Rustic, yes—but it becomes oh-so-elegant when you serve it on your very best china for a celebratory dinner.
