Chopped Salad with Pomegranate, Persimmon, and Pepitas

This fall and wintry salad sure doesn’t seem like a cold weather salad.  The flavors are bright, sweet and a bit tart.  Plus, the combinations of color make a gorgeous presentation.  I highly recommend the lemon vinaigrette to dress this chopped salad, but regular vinaigrette will work just fine too.  If you want to make the salad for a dinner party, you can prepare it earlier in the day; just don’t dress the salad until right before serving.

Fig, Goat Cheese Cracker Bites

This little appetizer came about when we wanted a snack before dinner and there wasn’t much in the refrigerator.  I had some leftover fig jam from a stuffed pork loin, and a bit of fresh chevre goat cheese.  We dug out some butter crackers from the pantry and voila, a sweet and savory appetizer.

This is a sweet and zesty salad with the lemon strawberry vinaigrette dressing.  Toasted pistachios add an umami flavor, while the goat cheese offers a creamy mellow flavor and texture.  Baby lettuces work best in this delicate salad.

Il Nocciolo

Upon looking for a new cheese in our local cheese case, the cheese monger suggested I try Il Nocciolo, from Caseificio dell’Alta Langa.  This super soft, small square package is a new offering in our store, a combination of creamy cow, sheep, and goat cheese from Italy, specifically the northern Piedmont region.

The salty prosciutto pairs very well with the tangy mustard and the smooth sweet Honey Goat Gouda cheese.
