Pat and I have been rewatching New Girl on Netflix and that is easily my favorite line of the show. It also is the most accurate depiction of how I feel about this Maple Tahini Fall Harvest Salad.

To be honest, I’m never been good at making salads. At least not salads that serve as the main course. I order salads at restaurants and enjoy them; but it wasn’t until recently that I figured out why my salads at home were not up to par.

TEXTURE.

Yep. Now this might seem obvious to some, but it took me a long time to figure this out. I want a salad with some crunch, some cream, some salt, some sweet, some pop, some pizzazz – you know?!

Luckily, this salad has got it!
