This Salad Is a Party

September has arrived, and with it, fall house cooking. I do know, you’re in all probability nonetheless consuming tomatoes. I’m too. (We had this quantity for dinner on Wednesday. So good.) I like this shoulder season, whenever you’re perhaps nonetheless consuming big, full of life salads for dinner, however they’re a little heftier and never born of humid desperation to simply cool off.

But as I peeled apples this week for a Rosh Hashana galette, and put a roast hen within the oven with carrots and potatoes, my thoughts went to crisp, sunny afternoons and funky evenings — sweater climate — and all of the tastes I affiliate with them. How about you? What are you making? Tell me every little thing. I’m [email protected], and I learn each word.
