In the winter, sweeter Mission figs are in season, in summer the less sweet green figs. Walnuts give this salad a bitter edge to balance the sweetness of the vinaigrette and figs.
Maple Balsamic Fig Salad with Goat Cheese Croquettes
Serrano Ham and Roasted Pear Salad
Serrano ham is a Spanish dry-cured ham, similar to Italian prosciutto but drier and firmer. It has a salty bite, so we’ve used it sparingly here, wrapping it around roasted pears for a delicious play of sweet and salty.
Sweet Potato Salad
Instead of a heavy mayonnaise dressing, we’ve lightened up potato salad by using our Blue Menu California Dressing. We’ve also used nutritious sweet potatoes, with high amounts of Vitamins A and C and antioxidant beta carotene.
