A Fall Table // Trebo Salad Recipe

November 4, 2015

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, Fall tablescapes are on my mind.  I like an approach to a Fall table that doesn’t seem so obvious.  A few fall colors mix in with some brighter colors makes for a beautiful table that doesn’t scream Fall or Thanksgiving and I think is a nice chic approach.
A simple Rosemary sprig can help dress up a place setting, and it doesn’t break the bank.  
Florals always bring a finishing touch to the table.  I picked up this fall floral bouquet from Harmons Grocery, and a table cloth and linens from Home Goods.  Once I knew the colors with the help of my tablecloth, I was able to put the rest together.  I found the perfect little Pellegrino bottle from Harmons and a few little treats to decorate the table from Home Goods.
This salad is one of my favorite salads, but would also be an amazing addition to your Thanksgiving spread.  With brussels sprouts and fresh thyme, it is the perfect fall salad that is always a show stopper.  My friend JaNaan served this at one of her amazing lunches, and I just had to get the recipe. It has a homemade vinaigrette with a lovely fresh lemon flavor mixed with fresh thyme.
Trebo Salad
Adjust amounts to the size of salad you will need:
Fresh Arugula
Shaved fresh brussels sprouts
Toasted sliced almonds (toasted in a skillet for a few minutes until the edges are a little golden)
Hard Boiled Eggs, Sliced
Bacon, cooked and cut into small strips
Pecorino cheese, grated
Lemon Thyme Vinaigrette
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons finely minced shallots
1 teaspoon fine lemon zest (zest the yellow part of the lemon only with a microplane)
1 teaspoon fresh chopped thyme leaves
pinch of freshly ground pepper and sea salt to taste.
Whisk in 1 1/2 cups of regular olive oil (not extra virgin).
Adjust lemon juice to the acidity taste you like.
Add the dressing to the salad just to coat and serve.
I hope this has helped inspire your fall table.  I don’t know why, but I just love a nicely set table.  It seems to be a rare occurrence these days,  gone are the days that every couple registered for a nice china set for their wedding.  But, I sure hope the art of setting a nice table continues on.  There is something special about sitting around a table with those you love enjoying a nice meal.
