Medieval Salad Recipe

Game of Thrones Sansa Salad

This is a tasty, tasty salad, based loosely on instructions for making a salad from the 14th-century Forme of Cury. All the elements work beautifully with one another both texturally and aesthetically. Pack this for a lunch or serve it as a light afternoon meal, and you won't be disappointed.
