EVENT: Round Up - Fall Salads - Recipes

I am so very sorry that this round up was so late. Life got seriously in the way! My husband is feeling much better and is doing really well so far. I had two holiday parties to organize and they went off without a hitch. Then I myself collapsed with a cold for a few days. Now I am back to blogging a bit and thought I best get this round up, well, rounded up.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this little event. There all look delicious and I want to try them all!

Blog: A French Foodie in the City
Recipe: Warm Rattes Salad
Not Mine - Ratte Salad
Aurore, brings us a potato salad with a simple vinaigrette. I had never heard of the Ratte Potato from France. To me it looks like a fingerling potato and from her description it sounds like one too. But you know that there are loads of little differences in all things on this bountiful earth.

Recipe: Autumn Salad of Mesclun with St Andre and Hot Walnut Dressing
Not Mine - st andre walnut salad
Mickey has made a salad that I could eat all the time. You just have to mention St. Andre cheese and I drool. I like to eat it with pears after supper. But now I am going to have it for supper.

Blog: Eat Drink Talk
Recipe: Salad of Red Grapes, Feta, Rosemary and Pumpkin Seeds
Jennifer does not have an actual blog but she runs a cooking school in England. She has made this delicious sounding salad. She says that "the combination of the sweet grapes, the salty feta
and the rosemary might seem unusual but it really should be tried. It's especially delicious if the pumpkin seeds are still warm when you assemble the salads."

Recipe: Persimmon, Apple Salad with a Ginger Lemon Vinaigrette
Not Mine -Persimmon Salad
Rinku has made a salad with Persimmon, a quintessential fall fruit. I bet the ginger lemon vinaigrette rounds out the smooth musky flavor of the fruit.

Blog: Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity
Recipe: 1,000 Calorie Salad
Not Mine -1000 calorie salad
Dolores who mentions the salad making pitfalls on Top Chef makes what she calls her 1,000 calorie salad. I had to laugh because I love this kind of salad. Toasted nuts err, I mean candied nuts and all the fixings!

Blog: Savoury Snack
Recipe: Pink Fingertip Salad
Not Mine -beet feta salad
Amanda made a scrumptious Beet & Feta Tabbouleh salad. A classic combination of flavors. The sweet beets and the sharp Feta are a perfect match.

Blog: K├╝chenlatein
Recipe: Pear Coleslaw Salad
Not Mine -pear coleslaw salad
Ulrike made a delicious coleslaw in which she added pears. This is a very inventive addition which I will have to try as soon as I can.

Blog: Jumbo Empanadas
Recipe: Roast Beet Salad
Not Mine - Roast beet Salad
Brilynn joins us in the love of beets during the fall. I like the idea of adding fennel seeds to salad. That would add a nice twist.

Blog: Up the Creek without a PatL
Recipe: Wilted Spinach with Warm Bacon Dressing
Not Mine - Spinach Salad
Pat makes a salad that I would call comfort food. When it is a really cold fall day and you are thinking it could be winter but the calender says it is still fall, then this is the salad for you.

Blog: Gluten-Free By The Bay
Recipe: Roasted Butternut Squash, Marconna Almond and Pomegranate Salad
Not Mine - Squash Salad
By The Bay roasts up some squash for this salad and sprinkles pomegranate all over. Marconna Almonds are sometiems hard to find but they are worth it.

Blog: Married ...with dinner
Recipe: Pear and Arugula Salad
Not Mine - Pear Arugula Salad
Anita made one hearty salad but did not care for it which is surprising coming becuase it sounded delcious. But she made a new salad and came up with something she really liked, I think adding the guanciale is what did it.

Those are some very nice looking salads. I've been on the lookout for the perfect salad lately. All of these look scrumptious!
Hope your hubby is doing better.

I am just so sorry that the round up took so long to get up. It did not take me long at all to do once I found the time.
