Crisp Kale Salad with Cider-Roasted Squash & Apple Cider Vinaigrette (+ a GIVEAWAY!)

Cider-Roasted Squash & Kale Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

I’m sad to say this is the last recipe in our year-long partnership with DeLallo Foods. Although, seeing the sheer quantity of tasty things we still have in our pantry, I should probably say it’s the last OFFICIAL recipe. Their products are so good that we’ve made them a part of our daily lives, and you’ll no doubt see them pop up in future recipes.

This salad seems like the perfect finale, featuring DeLallo’s newest SaladSavors® flavor: Crisp. With toasted almonds, crunchy red apple chips, and sharp white cheddar cheese, it’s a perfect trio of toppings to complement the sweet roasted squash and hearty kale.

I tell you, I’d devour an entire BAG of those apple chips.

Well, that was fun. Passion fruit week was a smashing success (in my opinion at least), and you all seemed to love the recipes as much as I did. I’m officially out of passion fruit now (sad face), so I guess it’s back to the same-old-same-old next week. To wrap things up I’d like to...

Passion Fruit Caramels

There’s a fine-line between passion and compulsion, and I fear I’m starting to exhibit stalker-like tendencies. Seriously. Since my first encounter with passion fruit a few months back, I’ve been buying puree and concentrate and syrup and whatever other iteration of the fruit I can find. Not to mention the tote-full of fresh passion fruit...
