Some salads only need the slightest boost to go from ordinary to extraordinary. That’s the case with this Delicata Squash & Arugula Salad. A little brushing of Apple Cider Vinaigrette enhances the natural sweetness of this fall and winter vegetable. Delicata squash is a particular favorite because unlike butternut squash, it doesn’t requiring peeling the skin before cooking, or eating. I love to make use of the whole thing, so give the seeds a roast alongside the squash slices. They’re a perfect, crunchy contrast in this salad.
I’ve found my children will eat “Orange Soup” more readily than they will eat Carrot Soup or Butternut Squash soup. So any of the numerous variations I make between September and March each year, all fall under the heading “Orange Soup”.
There’s a limitless number of ways you can make this soup, and the glorious thing is that it’s extremely difficult to mess up. It’s also a great way to clean out the fridge, and use up some lonely vegetables.
Right about now tomatoes are flooding farmers’ markets, and just like that, they’ll be gone in a few weeks. That’s just the way it goes as summer fades into fall. Canning is one way to extend the season, but that takes a bit of time not everyone has available. Another way, and one that can take your salad to the next level, is to slow roast them.
Slow roasting takes some time, but it’s all hands off. Pop them in the oven while your doing another project around the house, and you’ll be rewarded for weeks, and months to come. Stored in the fridge, with a thick layer of olive oil, these Slow Roasted Tomatoes will last for up to 2 months. That is, if you can resist eating them all at once.
