Our Fruity Harvest Salad is a wonderful addition to any table. This recipe makes 8 portions, so serve it family style and let people dig in – either as a side (to something like pork or steak) or just as a main course. Its unique character makes it perfectly acceptable independent of anything else, with a well balanced flavor. Roasting both vegetables and fruits will multiply their flavors tenfold, sweet and savory, with nutty and salty pesto adding some equilibrium. Toss in some pecans for crunch and some brie for luxury and you're good to go.
