Seasonal vegetable salad at North
By Sarah Gish and Andrea Shores
Who says comfort food can’t be healthy?
North, a contemporary Italian restaurant at 4579 W. 119th St., serves a seasonal vegetable salad that only tastes like an indulgence.
Picture hunks of orange butternut squash tossed with charred green Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, ruby radicchio, pistachios and chopped dates. Farro, an ancient grain with a nutty texture, adds extra bite, and white balsamic vinaigrette ties all of the fall flavors together.
Warning: This colorful $11 salad is hefty; ask the server to split it in two if you plan to order an entree. — S.G.
