Fall Cobb Salad

1 bag mixed field greens

1 bag craisins to

½ cup candied or plain walnuts

1 cup stilton bleu cheese

1 cup pomegranate seeds

1 can mandarin oranges

½ cup shallots, julienned

1 box golden raisins

Toss field greens in a medium sized bowl. Add craisins, walnuts, bleu cheese, pomegranate seeds, mandarin oranges, shallots, and golden raisins in vertical layers on top of the greens. Drizzle with dressing.

Pomegranate Vinaigrette Dressing

3 tablespoons pomegranate juice

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

½ tablespoons dry mustard powder

3 tablespoons honey

¾ teaspoon salt

½ cup extra virgin olive oil

Mix all ingredients except for the olive oil in a mixing bowl. Slowly add olive oil, whisking hard to avoid separating the oil from the rest of the mixture. Drizzle over Fall Cobb Salad.

Apple Cider Glazed Lamb Chops

1 cup apple cider

2 tablespoons minced garlic

2 tablespoons minced ginger

3 tablespoons soy sauce

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon honey

8 rib lamb chops (3/4 inch thick)


Boil cider, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, and honey in a small saucepan for 10-12 minutes or until approximately ¼ cup remains. Cool completely.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pat lamb chops dry and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Arrange on broiler pan and brush top of chops with half of glaze already prepared. Broil three to four inches from heat for three minutes. Turn and brush with remaining glaze, then broil for an additional three to four minutes. This will result in medium-rare chops. Cozy’s chefs recommend serving lamb medium-rare. Transfer chops to plate and brush with any leftover glaze. Let stand for five minutes. Serve with your favorite fall vegetables such as parsnips and brussel sprouts.
