I Love It When José Cooks for Me

That is why I visit José Andrés' restaurants as much as possible. The salad below featuring his line of ingredients, was posted on his facebook page today and puts sardines to a fine, light and luscious use. Not to mention its easy and oh so quick to make, while also fitting into the low carb/Paleo lifestyle. Enjoy!
