Warm White Bean & Carrot Salad Recipe

Warm White Bean & Carrot Salad Recipe

The midwest is bracing for what will reportedly be a "dangerous, multifaceted and potentially life-threatening" blizzard. Reports of incoming extreme weather tend to be over-blown in these parts, but that type of language will definitely get some attention. 

Winter

The first snowflakes started to fall half an hour ago, and as I type this an intriguing combination of snow, hail, and rain is tapping at my dining room windows. Perhaps it would be wise to heed the weather warnings and plan a stop at the grocery store this evening to stock up on ingredients for some satisfying snow-day fare. I recommend this Warm White Bean and Carrot Salad with dill, shallots, and toasted almonds.

I followed this recipe from 101 Cookbooks. The only change I made was to cook the carrots in butter, which gave them a wonderful flavor. Be sure to let the dressing rest as the recipe instructs. This salad was best the day it was made, but kept well. 

Stay warm!
