Arugula and roasted red grapes salad with shallot vinaigrette

I've always liked adding fruity notes to savoury dishes and you may find examples of this personal 'culinary trend' here, here and here.

I would now add another item to the list, inspired by a recipe I've recently found on Vegetarian Times. The salad here is a perfect example of the extra-ordinary result you can get combining fresh seasonal ingredients in a perfect balance of flavours.

The decadent sweetness of roasted grapes pairs well with the bitter tang of arugula salad and the tasty parmesan shavings. The scallion - mustard vianigrette adds an extra kick of flavour and turns a simple salad in an amazing starter or side dish.

If you are in the mood for 'fruity-savoury' recipes you can have a look at the following list, which I hope will satisfy both the italian and english speaking blogging community around the world:

Hello, October.

Hello, October.

I have been missing your sober cloudy skies
and their quiet dripping rain

Longing for this cozy afternoon,
for the silence you bring in here.

I have been dreaming of this misty early afternoon
and its silent song of red falling leaves.
Thank you for being back.

 Welcome, October.
