Autumn Salad Ideas
ChefTalk.com Top Picks
Apple and/or pear & fennel salad with Honey Dijon vinaigrette, (and optional) Parmesan cheese.
I love salad, and use anything that is fresh & in Season. Add hearts of palm, artichoke hearts, figs, bleu cheese, grilled romaine or baby bok choy. Whatever strikes your fancy. Nothing wrong with the classics like Caesar (& adding chicken etc.). Have fun with it.
Thanks for your suggestions guys. I ended up putting together a classic butternut squash salad with beetroot carpaccio, red chicory, ciabatta chips, grilled pear and......honey dijon dressing! I also whipped up some goat cheese mousse, I think its a nice original autumn salad. But, we will see how it fares on the menu!
I'm putting on my menu a marinated, roasted cauliflower salad with pickled chilis, baby kale with an oregano vinaigrette. I'm also trying a house smoked trout with castelfranco and treviso, buttermilk dressing, radishes and cucumbers. Next is a chilled barely salad with roasted carrots, sorghum vinaigrette and some kind of spicy green.
