I’m pleased to bring you another of Grace Gotham’s delicious and always healthy recipes.  If you’re a follower of this blog, you know how crazy I am for Jersey tomatoes and how all summer we have simple salads of tomatoes, onion and basil or Caprese salads.  Once the tomato season faded, I used to think of salads as not much more than a bowl of greens or an Iceberg wedge with Blue Cheese dressing.  That was then and this is now!  Grace has created a beautifully balanced salad that works well throughout Fall and into Winter.  The flavors are as crisp and vivid as the colors of the harvest ingredients in the bowl.

Autumn Salad

The following is a description of this salad“Delicious Autumn salad. Chopped baby spinach, Gotham Greens Blooming Brooklyn Iceberg Lettuce, julienned, Honeycrisp apples, roasted curry butternut squash*, golden raisins, toasted almonds, and homemade lemon-curry vinaigrette”

*(You can make the Curry Butternut Squash according to one of many recipes online.  You may like yours to be more sweet than savory.  Foodnetwork.com, Epicurious.com and several other web sites have recipes for Curry Butternut Squash.)

Dress this salad with Grace’s Simple Lemon-Curry Vinaigrette:

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/8 cup rice vinegar, zest of half a lemon, juice of half a lemon, 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard, 1/2 teaspoon sweet curry powder, 1/2 teaspoon hot curry powder, liberal pinch of Maldon sea salt. Whisk until emulsified. (I use a latte milk whisk to emulsify my vinaigrettes. It’s faster and easier!).
