I'm sick and tired of traditional Christmas food, so I'm going to be making something completely different this year. I have planned out most of the main dish, but I need someone to tell me what they think of this!
So, I will be making a warm romanesco, potato, fennel and kale salad (dressing??? Nothing vinegary! Seasoning/flavoring??? I've thought about adding some orange/grapefruit wedges to the salad, but that might make the dinner too citrusy...) and with it, I'll be serving roast chicken flavored with saffron, fennel seeds and mandarin fruit. I'm going to squeeze the juice of two mandarins and some lemon juice onto the chicken, so that will be some sort of moisture in the dish. If I make this, will the dish be too dry, if so, what could I make to accompany it? Any suggestions for change to make it even tastier?
