Réveillon Salad

Although any blend of salad mix will work for this recipe, hearty greens, such as radicchio, frisée, and escarole, serve best because they don't wilt easily when dressed and tossed with the vegetable cubes. The bitter flavor of these seasonal greens also balances the sweet ingredients.

Cooking Light DECEMBER 2008

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: about 1 1/2 cups)


  • 1 1/2 cups (1-inch) cubed peeled fresh pumpkin (about 12 ounces)
  • Cooking spray
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 14 cups lightly packed gourmet salad greens
  • 3/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup hard cider
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 8 gingersnaps, crushed (about 2 ounces)


1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Place pumpkin in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Coat pumpkin lightly with cooking spray; toss. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; toss. Bake at 400° for 18 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Cool completely.

3. Combine pumpkin, salad greens, raisins, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl, and toss gently. Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, cider, and next 4 ingredients (through mustard) in a blender; process until blended.
