Fall Harvest Salad with Mustard Seed Vinaigrette

Fall Harvest Salad with Mustard Seed Vinaigrette

I was driving through town – a new route since the move, when out of the corner of my eye I spotted an old lady pulling fresh produce out of the trunk of her car. I quickly made an abrupt u-turn. This makeshift roadside stand deserved a closer look. I was her first customer of the day so I got dibs on the cutest homegrown squash I ever did see. She said the apples were really juicy so I got some of those too, throw in some sweet potatoes and this might be the best $6 I ever spent. I’m still getting to know my new kitchen so this was an easy first meal to make – everything gets roasted together: sweet potatoes, squash, apples and shallots spiced with a little cinnamon and cayenne to celebrate the season. Oh, speaking of celebrating, my lovely blogger friend Renee over at Will Frolic for Food is celebrating marrying the love of her life so while she’s off kissing and discovering a rainbow of cacao pods in hawaii I’m posting this recipe over on her blog so be sure to check it out!

    So much fun! We have a guy that sells bread out of his truck on Sundays – we just love going there! Also, definitely heading over for the recipe now. The mustard seed vinaigrette sounds lovely.

    yes to roasting autumn vegs for a warm salad. now that it’s so much cooler in temps, soup is the natural choice but having a warm salad is such a great thing to fall back on. your addition of roasted apples looks great!

    Yes to roasted apples in salad! This is a perfect way to add a bit of sweetness to a salad. I love mixing fresh and roasted veggies and nuts to a salad. Such a good balance.
