We enjoyed the Ruby Red & Apple Salad last night. I also tried a new recipe for Scotch Eggs (with chorizo & bulk sausage). I made a half recipe of the salad...used Tuscan kale and a Granny Smith apple along with the other ingredients. Curry was an interesting taste twist. All of the tastes went well with the baked Scotch Eggs.

Pretty good. Might play around with that curry spice, I did add some fresh garlic to the dressing. Also right before eating, sprinkled on some blue cheese crumbles and toasted walnuts. Pretty good!
