Autumn Salads– Yum!

It's a sure sign that Autumn is here when I make up the bed with flannel sheets, pull out a flannel quilt and turn on the oven and start roasting things.  After seeing this recipe, I went looking for fresh figs in Santa Fe ... and settled for dried, which were apparently only available because, "they're seasonal."  Still, it made for a tasty lunch yesterday. The figs are combined with kale (massaged with lemon juice and olive oil), roasted butternut squash, shallot, pumpkin seeds and a balsamic reduction.

Autumn Salad

I thought I was all done with salad meals at the end of summer (and the end of fresh heirloom tomatoes at the farmers market), but this one was so good, it has me shifting gears and thinking about roasted vegetables and autumn salads.

wow, that looks great and I adore figs - and I think you can still just about get them for another few weeks. Fresh fig season is so short! I might have to make this for part of my birthday feast... Thanks :)

Now that's different. How do you massage lettuce or kale or anything green and leafy?

That is a delicious looking lunch! Makes me hungry, but I've just finished breakfast...

..and to think I used to have a fig tree and usually ignored them!

I have all those things on hand, so this is my salad today!

Thanks.
