autumn salad? Get out your melon baller. We saw these beautiful salads served in apple shells over at Yummy Mummy. It sounds pretty easy—slice off the top of the apple and scoop out the flesh with an ice cream scoop or a melon baller, leaving a thick edge. The salad inside is so colorful and lush, a mix of avocado, blue cheese, apple, and pomegranate seeds. We're not even sure you'd need much apple in the salad; guests could cut the "bowl" and eat it along with the other ingredients. • Get the recipe: Harvest Apple Salad with Pomegranate, Avocado, and Blue Cheese, at Yummy Mummy.
We've seen these apple bowls filled with caramel dipping sauce, too (served with slices). Have you ever tried it? Any tips? Related: Food Served in Itself: Pretty or Kitschy? (Images: Marina of Yummy Mummy, used with permission)
