Here’s my best attempt at reproducing the outstanding Harvest Salad, a seasonal specialty at Dewey’s Pizza in Cincinnati.
I was in Cincinnati for a few weeks and ate one of these every other day! (They make terrific pizza as well).
▪ Baby Lettuce/ Spring Mix
▪ Boursin Cheese (Shallot and Chive)
▪ Bacon Bits (make your own!)
▪ Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
▪ Sliced Mission Figs*
Apple Cider Vinaigrette
▪ 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar (good quality)
▪ 3/4 cup Canola Oil
▪ 1 tbsp Honey
▪ pinch of salt
*Rather than go with the sliced figs in the original salad, I just added 2 Tbsp of fig butter (from Trader Joe’s) to the vinaigrette, since I happened to have some. I thought it was as good, if not better. If you happen to have fig jam, you could use that too, though I would use less honey as the fig jam has more sugar than the fig butter.
