Shallots are part of the onion family and have a mild onion-garlic flavor. In place of 3 to 4 shallots, use 1 medium onion plus a pinch of garlic powder or (if you like the taste of garlic) 1 minced garlic clove.
Creating recipes with my husband and grown daughter is family fun time at our house. Honey-roasted sliced almonds add appealing crunch and sweetness to this pretty salad.
