Our first Fresh in the Deli treat for December is the Power Salad, courtesy of the Hendersonville Co-op in Hendersonville, North Carolina. Sweet potatoes, pecans, raisins and Granny Smith apples are all dressed up in a yogurt dressing, spiced with cinnamon and sweetened with agave. Serve it alongside a holiday cheese plate, or have some for brunch!
Our second Fresh in the Deli dish is Quinoa with Cashews and Cranberries from our friends at Moscow Food Co-op in Moscow, Idaho. This sassy quinoa salad is tarted up with lemon and dried cranberries and mixed with toasted cashews and fresh mint, making a nice, seasonal side dish when served with roasted meats or poultry.
