“This is my most requested holiday recipe. Serve it on its own, scoop it on some salad, spread it between bread for a hearty sandwich, roll it into a wrap to-go or spoon it onto a cracker for a quick snack! It’s so versatile. — Meg Harrell, Charlotte, North Carolina.
The crisp fall days are upon us and we are all looking to pack away those summer recipes and delve into some “in season” produce. There are so many delicious dishes you can make during the fall season. I mean they call it “the harvest season” for a reason!
Fall is the best time to pick those crunchy fresh apples! This is also the time of year when pecans have the best flavor. Celery is another vegetable that is “long season”. It is grown & harvested well into the fall months. I have a perfect cold salad recipe that you can make super quickly and devour in multiple ways!
