This is our go-to house salad recipe, which we serve almost weekly (and is infinitely adaptable)!

If you can get your hands on fresh wild ramps, homemade ramp pesto is an absolute must! It's got a vibrant garlic and spring onion flavor that pairs well with Pecorino Romano cheese and nutty walnuts. Add basil and lemon for freshness (and to cut back on the garlic flavor). Mix into pasta or serve with your favorite grilled proteins and roasted vegetables. Freezer-friendly!
Would I rather win the lottery or stumble upon ramps at the farmer's market? Ramps, obviously! With a short season of just 3 weeks per year, make the most of any wild leeks you find by making quick pickled ramps. Their spring onion and garlicky flavor is the perfect addition to many savory dishes, while the remaining brine can be used in salad dressings. Quick, easy, and so flavorful!
Roasted root vegetables are an easy, flavorful side dish to enjoy all fall and winter long. Mix and match veggies that you love most: beets, parsnips, carrots, sweet potatoes, shallots, radishes. Roast until tender, then add a bit of creamy goat cheese (we recommend Selles-Sur-Cher). The perfect side dish that goes with everything from roast chicken to steak to seafood!
Radicchio has a reputation for being extremely bitter. We cut the bitterness in this charred radicchio salad with a simple homemade balsamic vinaigrette. It's flavored with anchovy paste, lemon, and sweet honey! Top the salad with grated Grana Padano truffle cheese for a well balance vegetable side dish worthy of any entrée.
Hasselback butternut squash is stuffed with fresh sage leaves and thinly sliced garlic, then topped with an apple cider bourbon glaze. Top the whole thing with panko breadcrumbs and crunchy pecans. A sweet, tangy side dish or vegetarian main for holiday entertaining!
