This salad has flavors that speak eloquently of autumn —pears, walnuts, bitter greens and cranberries. You can substitute other dried fruit if you like. It’s a simple enough salad to serve for every day, yet dressed up enough to serve as a first course for company meals. It’s a welcome addition to Thanksgiving and Christmas menus, as well. Double the recipe for a larger crowd. Contributed by Jill Nussinow, MS, RD, adapted from The Veggie Queen™: Vegetables Get the Royal Treatment.* more→

Roasted Root Vegetable Medley

Roasted root vegetable medley

Oven-roasting brings out the natural sweetness of many vegetables, and this is particularly true in the case of root vegetables. You can vary the vegetables suggested here; for example, if you prefer not to use beets, use more of one of the other types of vegetables; and if you don’t care for parsnips, try golden potatoes. more→
