A cool-weather salad filled with roasted delicata squash, persimmons and pomegranate that’s brimming with bright flavors and colors.
While this time of the year warm soups and hearty casseroles often steal the spotlight, I think that a substantial salad brimming with seasonal favorites like squash and hearty greens has its place at the dinner table as well. One with body and heft, that’s loaded with colors and big, bright flavors ranging from sweet to tart, especially when a nice, zippy vinaigrette is involved.
Of course the possible variations are countless but I’m quite partial to this delicata squash salad loaded with persimmons and pomegranate seeds. It‘s a wonderful mix of sweet, tart, crunchy and creamy all in beautiful shades of gold, red and green.
These dark chocolate truffle squares are smooth and intensely chocolatey.
Pure deliciousness, that’s what these little squares are.
Now if you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time you’re probably already familiar with my penchant towards the dark stuff.
I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for a good chocolate tart, a silky pot de crème, a rich chocolate fudge slice, and I’d give everything a good dip in it if given a chance. So I suppose it comes as no surprise that I’d be swooning over chocolate truffles, but let me tell you, these are no ordinary truffles!
