Fall Fest: Fall salad with grapes and figs

A fall salad, what an easy and appealing theme this week for the Fall Fest organized by Margaret Roach on A way to garden. I can’t say if she is more an expert of gardening or cooking. In both cases, her approach is really fresh. And the word fresh doesn’t refer only to temperature, it refers too to the deside to eat fresh food, food in the right season. From that idea born the Summer Fest 3 years ago. Now we’re in autumn, so it’s time to work for the Fall Fest.

My Fall Salad mixed grapes, really on season with fennel and with the roman rocket. In all Italy, rocket is known as rucola, while her in Rome you find rughetta. It’s such a typical vegetable, that you find it at the market almost in every season. The last ingredient is …

  2. So many names for one little plant 😉 You are perfectly right to use all, I am not familiar with this salad ingredient, since in the middle of the USA we usually eat it and it is not widely available ( as far as I know). When I looked for substitutes, baby spinach was suggested, with the addition of watercress. Since your ‘rucola’ is described as “peppery” I bet that it is best if I found some of the real thing 🙂

  3. oops I meant to say we *don’t* usually eat arugula, but we do eat lots of spinach ( maybe because of “Popeye the Sailor Man” cartoons!)
