Review of New Recipes: 

Honeyed Winter Salad - Ease to make- 8/10, Julie- 9/10, Tim- 8.5/10, It's a GO!

I will definitely be making this salad again!  Tim and I were both surprised with how tasty and filling this was! The grilled veggies were tender, but had a bit of crisp. And they had a sweet and salty thing going on with the salt/pepper and honey combo. So good!
