Roasted Acorn Squash and Apple Soup with Wild Mushroom & Sage Olive Oil
Roasting all the veggies brings out their natural sweetness, which is enhanced by the addition of apple in this soup. The wild mushroom and sage olive oil adds a lovely herbaceous and earthy note to this festive soup. It’s kid-friendly, too! Serves 4.
Apple & Walnut Harvest Salad with Sweet Grass Dairy Griffin and a Gravenstein Vinaigrette
Sweet Grass Dairy describes its porter-soaked Griffin cheese as having aromas of malt, earth, maple syrup and coffee beans – all of which can be considered flavors of fall – making this cheese an appetizingly appropriate addition to our apple & walnut harvest salad. The hints of porter in the Griffin perfectly compliment the Gravenstein apple balsamic vinaigrette. Makes about 2/3 cup vinaigrette; serves 4 to 6.
Crisp Asian Pear, Daikon and Avocado Salad with Sigona’s Sicilian Lemon Vinaigrette
This dish, inspired by a Vegas-favorite of one of our staff, is light, crunchy and a great, unique way to use Asian pears that’s different than a typical salad of greens. Our Sicilian lemon white balsamic adds a fantastic flavor that will knock your socks off. Serves 2.
Pan-Seared Rosemary Pork Chops with a Savory Apple Chutney
Once you’ve seared pork chops in our wild rosemary oil, you’ll never want them any other way again! A well-seasoned, seared chop that’s finished in the oven is a dish to celebrate. If you top it with the bonus recipe for balsamic-infused apple chutney, you might as well call it Christmas dinner. Serves 2.
