Hello! It’s starting to feel like Fall in San Francisco… which is really one of the best times of the year (very little fog and clear skies). This is a simple recipe for an Autumn Salad that I created recently using these ingredients from Trader Joe’s. My husband loves it…and he’s a great cook. It makes two servings but you could easily double or triple it!
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1/2 shallot minced
- 1/2 cup olive oil extra virgin
- Sea salt and pepper to taste
- 2 pears sliced
- 2 cups arugula
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1 cup sliced fennel
- 1/3 cup spiced pumpkin seeds from Trader Joes
Add all vinaigrette ingredients to a jar and shake well before serving.
Arrange salad ingredients on plates and drizzle with olive oil
I also served this one-pan Mediterranean Chicken (that I’ve made many times) with the salad. It’s garnished with rosemary sprigs…gives the kitchen a nice fragrance.
This is the salad below just before I drizzled on the dressing. There is also a little glimpse of a new Project Design post coming THIS Thursday: Five Tablescapes to Try Before Thanksgiving. Be sure to stop by on Thursday for some inspiration from four other great bloggers.
