Your favorite fall flavors now come in a healthy salad with roasted sweet potatoes, dried cherries, candied walnuts, and a sage balsamic vinaigrette.
By now I am sure most of you have seen the new Star Wars trailer. If not, do it now. I may have freaked out just a little bit when I saw it and now already cannot wait for next Christmas – the finale of Mockingjay and new Star Wars! But there are exciting movies to see this year as well. I already saw Mockingjay Part 1 and up next is the finale of the Hobbit. The winter holidays rock, don’t they? To make up for the colder temperatures we get stuffed with amazing food, decorate cookies, see pretty lights, and get to snuggle in front of a cozy fire and/or movie.
But today’s recipe is not for decorated cookies or even a hot beverage to drink while enjoying wintry activities. It does have some of those comforting flavors that come out this time of year though and shockingly enough it is in the form of a salad. Roasted sweet potatoes are tossed in a mixed greens salad with dried cherries, candied walnuts, and a sage vinaigrette. I got to bust out my white balsamic vinegar for this vinaigrette but you could definitely use regular if you cannot find white. Different color, same taste.

No bake granola bars are incredibly versatile. Try this gluten-free version with almond butter, dried cherries, and roasted pistachios
Holy freaking September where did you come from? Thankfully with the help of Bob, Christina, and Dave the end of August was not overlooked. We hillbilly mini golfed, saw thousands of salt and pepper shakers, wine/moonshine tasted, hiked to the tallest waterfall in the Smokies, saw a folk-rock band, grilled and just had a good time. Alas the arrival of September meant they had to return to their respective states today.
Accompanying us on this adventure were these gluten-free granola bars which came in handy on the hike. Just like the base for my favorite chocolate chip cookies, the base for these granola bars allows for all kinds of flavor options. This time I made them with almond butter, dried cherries, and roasted pistachios.
