When I saw the finished product of the salad, all I could think about was how little Peter Cottontail would love to get his little paws on this– hence the name.
I found this recipe on Gwyneth Paltrow’s blog, GOOP, in a newsletter about easy summer salads, but this recipe really works anytime of the year. It takes no time to put together and the ingredients are readily available throughout the year. A gorgeous piece of grilled salmon would be amazing with this as it is crunchy, a little sweet and perfectly gingery.
