Napa Cabbage and Rice Noodle Salad

Napa cabbage is a classic east Asian ingredient, and it adds a welcome texture change from your normal lettuce. If anyone you are serving this dish to has peanut allergies, you can hold the peanuts and still have a great flavor profile. I am completely in favor of the author’s suggestion for the dressing; a teaspoon of Sriracha adds a great kick!

Butternut Squash and Wild Rice Salad

This grain and squash salad is nice and hearty, perfect for the few cold nights we have left. Maple syrup gives the dressing a distinctly New England flavor profile. The pearl onions mixed in with the fruit give a savory bite to counteract all of the sweetness.
