I love fall and even though it’s not quite here yet I couldn’t resist making something with pumpkin. This is just the beginning, stay tuned for more pumpkin recipes or try these.
2T pumpkin puree
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
3 T olive oil
1 t honey
salt and pepper to taste
add all ingredients to a blender and mix until smooth ( you could also wisk by hand)
This is an easy and quick side dish or weeknight meal that captures the season’s flavors.
Warm Apple, Bacon, and Spinach Salad
5 slices of bacon chopped into 1″ pieces
1/4 c chopped onion
1 apple, chopped into bite sized pieces ( I left the skin on)
2 T apple cider vinegar
2 t honey
6 c fresh spinach
1/4 c pepitas (roasted and salted pumpkin seeds)
In a large fry pan, cook bacon over med high, add onions and cook until crisp, add apples and cook for 2 min, add honey and vinegar until heated through ( if you bacon is very fatty drain off all but 2 T fat before adding the honey and vinegar)
Add warm apple mixture to spinach toss and sprinkle with pepitas and serve.
