Fall Harvest Apple Grain Salad
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year because of all the delicious vegetables and fruit! I love to go apple picking during the months of September or October and then come up with new recipes using all the apples I’ve picked. This time of year, apples are extra sweet and juicy; I could eat them all day long! At the farmers market last weekend, I found some beautiful kale and butternut squash which was how I came up with this recipe. The combination of the sweet apples, tangy goat cheese and earthy grains is truly perfect— this dish hits all the right notes! When tossed with Marzetti® Tastefully Dressed™ Honeycrisp Apple Dressing this salad becomes next level. It is full of such bold flavors that all complement each other really well. I love this dressing because the new line of Marzetti® Tastefully Dressed™ Dressings has a UV-Blocking label that maintains bold flavors within while reducing the amount of preservatives. The dressing is filled with real, simple ingredients which is what I look for when I use store-bought dressing. You can taste the fresh Honeycrisp apples in the dressing which make the apples in the salad pop! This grain salad can be used with almost any grain- farro or brown rice would work great as well! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family has and make sure to pick a bottle of the new Marzetti® Tastefully Dressed™ Honeycrisp Apple Dressing. I found mine at Walmart in Dallas but you can find where you can purchase locally here. The salad won’t be the same without it! Happy fall!
