This recipe for Winter Chicory Salad with Kumquats and Date Dressing, weds sweet dates with kumquats and bitter greens, offset by tangy orange juice; pecorino adds salt and sharp flavor, and pistachios provide an extra salty crunch. The salad is also very beautiful to look at. It was sent to CCSA as part of a series of emails from our resident chef, Dr. Linda Doody. She began sharing her extensive collection of favorite recipes with friends, family, and the CCSA team as a means of maintaining connections during the COVID-19 pandemic and it has since become a company tradition.
