Ready-Set-Serve Heritage Blend Salad with Candied Kumquats

This blend of earthy, bitter, and sweet flavors hits the mark for fall and winter salad menus.


2 large yams, peeled and sliced into rounds

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1 cup kumquats, sliced

2 tsps. butter

2 tsps. sugar

16 oz. Ready-Set-Serve Heritage Blend

1 cup house-made croutons, finely chopped

2/3 cup poppy seed dressing


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Toss yam slices in olive oil. Arrange in four flat rounds by overlapping slices on parchment paper. Bake until nearly crisp; reserve.

Heat butter in a skillet to medium. Add kumquat slices and sprinkle sugar over all to caramelize. When sugar starts to brown, remove from heat.

Mix together Ready-Set-Serve Heritage Blend, kumquats, croutons, and poppy seed dressing. Arrange equal portions on top of baked yam rounds and serve.
