‘Tis the season for homemade treats, but they don’t all have to be sugary sweet. This duo of roasted nuts is great for cocktail parties, whether you’re hosting or bringing them as a hostess gift is up to you. The pecans get a refreshing boost from our Blackberry Vinaigrette, and were a hit with my colleague’s 8 year old. Cashews get a sophisticated makeover thanks to our Champagne Vinaigrette and some fresh rosemary, inspired by a recipe from Ina Garten, except our recipe has no sugar or butter.

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.
