I host a cookbook club at my local library and last month the theme was Pumpkin cookbooks. I made this awesome Pumpkin Vinaigrette from the Pumpkin Lover's Cookbook and added a winter inspired salad to it. It got rave reviews! Check it out:
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup white or apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 1/2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a Mason jar and shake well.
Note: I am not a measurer unless its for baking so these are all estimates, adjust as you like.
1 (5 oz.) container of spring mix or arugula
1/4 cup of sliced almonds, walnuts, or pistachios (whichever you prefer)
1 kid size box of golden raisins
1 celery stalk sliced
1 green onion sliced
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
1/2 of a sliced green apple.
Toss salad with about half of the mason jar dressing. I had some dressing left over to use for the next day! Enjoy.
