dressing made from dill mustard sauce, sour cream, and fresh herbs. Smoked
turkey breast is a great addition, as is ham or smoked salmon.

|Spring Vegetable Salad with Smoked Turkey Breast and Warm Root Vegetable Salad with Ham and Gorgonzola Cream|
As the dark days of the year approach, it feels completely in keeping to cook
with rustic root vegetables. This root vegetable salad with ham, pears, and
gorgonzola cream is an excellent dish during fall and winter.
4 portions2¼ lbs (1 kg) rutabaga, carrots, parsnips, celeriac, and beets
2 red onions

2. Preheat the 425˚F (225˚C). Brush the root vegetables clean, peel the
celeriac and rutabaga. Cut into small pieces. Peel and cut onions into
wedges. Lay everything out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper,
placing the beets separate so they don’t stain the other vegetables. Mix with
half of the oil, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
3. Roast the root vegetables in the middle of the oven until tender, 25–30
minutes. Stir occasionally.
4. Rinse the lentils and let them drain. Slice the ham thinly and cut the
pears into wedges.
5. Mix together the root vegetables, lentils, ham, pears, mixed greens,
lemon juice, and the rest of the oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish
with pumpkin seeds or walnuts, and serve with the gorgonzola cream.
