Harvest the flavors of fall

Fresh, filling & flavorful, fall harvest salads make delicious & healthy light meals

Making fall salads is all about highlighting the seasonal flavors, textures and colors of fall. As the weather cools and the nights get longer, a hearty fall salad will really hit the spot.

Make sure to highlight fall vegetables and fruits like squash and apples. Fall is a great time to make use of locally grown tomatoes, too. Hearty textures, deep colors and robust, yet mellow flavors characterize many fall vegetables. All of which make them wonderful pairs for gourmet fromage!

Mushrooms, squash, beets, apples - and of course, pumpkins are just some of the most popular fall veggies. Try adding roasted pumpkin seeds to green salads and using chopped Mushrooms with grated cheese.

Hard and hard-pressed cheeses taste great in fall salads because of their hearty, smooth flavor. They can be grated or cut into small cubes and mixed together with a variety of salad concoctions. Try Etorki, Emmental or Fol Epi, which all taste great with fall vegetables.

Goat cheese goes well with green salads and can easily be crumbled on top of a finished salad to add fresh flavors. Its salty flavor profile and refreshing texture makes it an ideal addition to salads with bold-flavored ingredients like tomatoes, mushrooms and squash.
