This is super Yummy! I love Goat Cheese and nuts, and fruit together. I based this idea loosely from Paradise Bakery's Fuji apple salad.
1 Head Romaine lettuce cut up
1 bag of spring mix lettuce
1/4 of red onion chopped
2 tomatoes chopped
1/2c. pomegranate seeds
1c. pecans divided toasted and chopped use 1/2c. for salad and chop other half finer and roll goat cheese balls in it. (I glazed the pecans another time when I made this. Delish!)
2 pouches of Mrs. Mays freeze dried apple slices
5 oz. goat cheese.
roll goat cheese into bite size balls and roll in chopped pecans. I put a couple of pomegranate seeds in middle of balls too for an added burst of flavor. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Apple Cider Dressing
1/2c. apple cider
2t. parsley flakes
3T. cider vinegar
1T. Dijon mustard
1/4c. olive oil
1 clove garlic minced
2T. agave nectar
5 slices dried apple crushed to powder
3T. sour cream
2 drops of apple flavoring (optional)
I love sweet potatoes. Especially this recipe. This is a staple at Thanksgiving and fall meals. It's almost like a dessert. This time I cooked some fresh cranberries and added that to it too.
Apple Sweet potatoes with Streusel topping
Peel and cook 6 yams or sweet potatoes. Drain and mash. While Still warm add:
1/3c. apple cider,
2 mcintosh apples peeled, cored and thinly sliced.
layer apples with mashed sweet potatoes
at this point you can add cooked cranberries or dried layered in their also. I cooked 1c. of cranberries in 1/2c. apple cider til they popped and were soft. I also added in 1/4c. dried cranberries.
3/4c. brown sugar
1c. chopped pecans
mix until crumbly
Sprinkle on top of sweet potatoes
Bake 350 for 30 minutes.
