with Sour Cream & Onion Dressing

Cooking time

30 minutes




640 /serving

You know the drill: spring forward, fall back—and here are some fall flavours you can definitely fall back on. First, we’ll toot the roots: beets and parsnips roasted to tender-sweet. Give them a soft, cool contrast with chopped iceberg lettuce and thinly sliced pear, dressed in sour cream, scallion and ranch-style seasonings (courtesy of our Back at the Ranch blend). For an embarrassment of riches, finish the salad with little gold nuggets, in the form of toasted pecans.

We will send you:

  • 1 Scallion
  • 200g Parsnips
  • 1 Head of lettuce

  • 30ml Champagne vinegar
