A Collection of 30 Salads for Late Autumn | Seasonal Cooking

Shaved Beetroot, Yoghurt and Preserved Lemon Relish

By Late Autumn the available fruits and vegetables have changed considerably from our Summer abundant produce. Sweet potatoes and new potatoes are excellent quality. There are a large range of grape varieties available. Citrus has hit the shops, from ruby grapefruits to mandarins. Fresh horseradish is in season. Pumpkins pile up in bins in the green groceries. Okra is more generally available, and radishes are generous and bright red. Fennel bulbs are luscious, and Jicama are coming back into the shops. Pears are juicy, and Apples range from small snack size to large pie size. Surprisingly, small garlic bulbs are around and they are lovely to roast. It is truly exciting to browse the shops and markets at this time of the year.

The weather can be changeable. This year it has been very warm, a prolonged Summer, while last year it was already cold, heater-and-jumper weather. The light is golden and gorgeous, and the trees light up at sunset. The weeds shoot in the garden and weeding becomes a major activity. Long walks are perfect during the day, and the night closes in earlier. Netflix use increases in the evenings.

Salads are in transition too. While some light salads are still made, more grains, beans and lentils appear. Root vegetables make it onto the scene – carrots, beetroot, carrots, parsnips. And cooked vegetable salads are more popular.
