Today, I bring you another recipe from Serious Eats, which this past week proved an indispensable resource for Amanda and me as we made our way up the West Coast on our own book tour (one of the highlights: The Crumpet Shop in Seattle). Last week, Amanda extolled the virtues of the cubano mixto, but this time we're going highbrow, with ABC Kitchen's transcendent roasted carrot and avocado salad. We loved the technique of roasting some of the citrus before adding it to the tart-sweet dressing, and the smattering of crunchy sunflower and sesame seeds against a backdrop of sweet, yielding carrot and silky avocado, makes for a textural combination that keeps you coming back for another bite.
