Fall Salad Recipe

We were inspired by this Pear and Endive Salad from Barrel & Ashes in Studio City, California. It’s garnished with goat cheese, walnuts, and a maple balsamic vinaigrette.

That’s a perfect salad recipe in our book. But how else can you make a fall-inspired salad? Start with your favorite lettuces. Then, add two or more selections from the fall produce list.

Aim for fall colors: a bit of orange,

FALL FRUITS

  • Apples, skin on
  • Asian pear or American pear varieties, skin on
