Fall Flavors – Sweet Potato, Apple & Pear Salad

Fall has arrived and with it comes fabulous flavors that bring the season to the forefront of your taste buds. This week we’ve created a recipe that capitalizes on the produce that will be delivered in our Large CSA produce box.  CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and we are happy to provide the freshest produce to our clients!

The sweet potatoes, apples and pears are signature flavors of the season and when combined they fully encompass the taste of the season in one bite!
