“This salad is a fabulous reminder of how light and flavorful autumn and winter produce can be.”
Even if Indian Summer lingers on, it’s nice to see apples crowding the markets again. Here’s a wonderful recipe to take advantage of fall and winter vegetables from Tiffany at The Gracious Pantry. As she describes it: an “explosion of flavor.” What more could you ask from a salad?

Ants on a Log Makeover from Anne of Teach. Eat. Love.
Here’s a great recipe update from Anne of Teach. Eat. Love. that replaces celery with California endive in the classic “ants on a log” snack. The traditional filling of raisins and peanut butter also gets a sophisticated upgrade, as dried cranberries, apples and blue cheese take a starring turn. Try this with a nice glass of white wine for an elegant appetizer.

Braised Endive from Adam of Amateur Gourmet
A cube of braised endive served on a cheese plate at The French Laundry inspired Adam Roberts to recreate what he had tasted at home. Better yet, he decided to prepare it for breakfast, served aside what he calls a “typical breakfast of scrambled eggs and toast.”
“The suprise is that (braised endive) is really easy to make at home,” Adam writes. With the help of a little butter, olive oil and heat (oh, and more butter), Adam transformed a few heads of endive into his morning side dish.
