FALL WEDGE SALAD WITH ARTISAN ROMAINE AND BUTTERNUT SQUASH
The Artisan Romaine from Tanimura & Antle is so pretty, I almost hate chopping it up. Artisan Romaine has the refreshing crunch of iceberg lettuce & the sweet flavor of a romaine heart. We buy a bag of it every week from Costco.
When sliced in half, the Artisan Romaine is like a beautifully layered bowl that drinks up the dressing without getting soggy. So I decided to create a fall wedge salad that highlights their beauty, while combining some of our favorite autumn ingredients.
One of the things I love about this fall wedge salad, is that you can buy pomegranate arils, plus peeled and chopped butternut squash, and eliminate quite a bit of prep time.
You can make the dressing while the squash cooks and plate it with the squash hot, or make everything in advance and keep it in the fridge until ready to serve.
Just before guests arrive, simply place one Artisan Romaine half on each salad plate, top with the cinnamon roasted butternut squash, pomegranate seeds, and walnuts, then drizzle generously with dressing. You’ll love it, and so will they!
