Cottage Radish Salad

Cottage Radish Salad | The garden was producing baby greens, green onions, radishes, and herbs. I had cherry tomatoes and cucumbers from elsewhere. That's how this salad was born. :) By topping the greens with the vegetable mixture, you get a lovely presentation and greens that stay crisp until they hit your mouth. For the most flavor, texture, and fun, be sure to get both toppings and greens in each bite! | GNOWFGLINS.com

Beet and Goat Cheese Salad

Looking for something pretty as well as healthy to serve your guests this holiday season? Here is an easy to prepare festive red and green beet salad. If you are not a fan of beets, perhaps it is because you haven’t really tasted them fresh! My husband did not care for them at all — until we began growing our own. Since both the tops and the roots can be eaten, beets perform double duty in the kitchen. For this salad, the beets are cooked and tossed warm with about two tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. Before serving, the salad is drizzled with olive oil. This makes for a very light, fresh tasting salad. [by Jenny Cazzola]

But she feels important and we DO do special cooking projects as well. Last week, she and I sat down and made a list of what foods tend to grow in autumn. She then matched up her favorite recipes with that food list and we chose five to share with you. [by Kresha Faber]
