0.50 cup pumpkin seeds
0.50 cup chopped hazelnuts
0.25 cup honey
1 tablespoon water
1 pinch kosher salt

Pomegranate Sage Vinaigrette

0.25 cup pomegranate juice
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon honey
0.75 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh sage

roughly chopped

Harvest Apple Salad

1.5 lbs chicken breast
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 bunch spring mix
1 bunch arugula
2 medium apples

thinly sliced

0.50 cup sharp cheddar cheese


0.50 cup pomegranate seeds
1 dash freshly ground black pepper




Candied Pumpkin Seeds & Hazelnuts

In a 10″ skillet, add the pumpkin seeds and hazelnuts. Toast over medium-low heat until slightly brown, about 6 minutes.

Add the honey and water. Raise the heat to medium and allow the honey to bubble. Stir the mixture so that the honey evenly coats the seeds and nuts. Let the honey simmer a couple of minutes until it thickens.

Pour the mixture into one, even layer onto an oiled piece of parchment paper. Immediately season with a pinch of salt while the mixture is still hot.

Let cool. Break into bite-size pieces.



Pomegranate Sage Vinaigrette

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the pomegranate juice, apple cider vinegar, mustard, and honey.

Slowly drizzle in the oil, whisking continuously until the vinaigrette has emulsified.

Season with salt to taste (make sure it is very well seasoned). Stir in the sage. Let sit until ready to serve.



Harvest Apple Salad

Pat the chicken dry and season well with salt.

Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add enough oil to just coat the bottom. Once hot, place the chicken into the skillet. Sear the chicken on one side for about 6 minutes. Once it releases easily, flip the chicken and sear on the other side for about 4 minutes.

Reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet with a lid, and finish cooking for about 8 more minutes, or until cooked through. Let the chicken cool and then roughly chop it into pieces.

To assemble the salad, combine the spring mix and arugula in a large mixing bowl. Add the apples, cheddar cheese, and grilled chicken. Give the vinaigrette a good whisk and drizzle it into the bowl (start with half of the vinaigrette and add more according to your preference).

Toss the salad well and season with salt to taste (if needed). Transfer the salad to a large serving bowl. Garnish with the pomegranate seeds, candied pumpkin seeds and hazelnuts, and freshly cracked black pepper.
