Hi Friends! I’m coming to you from a hotel room in Montana. Day three of my road trip is just about to start. As soon as I finish sipping my coffee, writing this blog post and studying a few maps, I’m jumping right back into my car and continuing East. Adventure awaits!
So in an effort to get a decent start to my day, I’m going to keep things short and sweet.
In my opinion, Fall salads should be hearty and something that you can really sink your teeth into. Because you know, it’s colder now and we need to bulk up and prepare for hibernation. At least that’s what I like to tell myself. Warning: don’t take health advice from me!
My Pear, Spinach and Quinoa Salad with Apricot Dressing contains lots of good-for-you ingredients. And it will help fill you up, without completely weighing you down. It’s a salad that I consider to be a “main meal” type of salad, and it’s one that I enjoy often for dinner this time of year.
The apricot jam is a fun addition to the dressing that gives an extra boost of flavor and sweetness. I’ve also successfully made this recipe with both plum and fig jam. So feel free to choose whichever jam you like the best. I’m confident that it will be great!
OK, I better get moving now. Bye!
