Once the oppressive heat goes away and the weather cools, salad season is officially over. Or, at least, that's how it feels. Romaine simply doesn't taste as good when there's a chill outside.
Autumn presents the perfect opportunity to get creative and push the boundaries of salad. Rather than going for room temperature lettuce with summery, chilled toppings, we're here to offer you an alternative that's great on many counts: it showcases the season's best vegetables, capitalizes on classic salad ingredients (yes, even a vinaigrette), and warms you up from the inside-out with every bite. What's not to love?
Read on for the recipe! We have a feeling you'll be referring back to it quite often...
This warm autumnal salad wraps a bevy of flavors in a very healthy package, making a great side dish for most any meal!
