Cranberry Bean Salad with Butternut Squash and Broccoli Rabe, Martha Stewart: This warm salad combines fall's best flavors and textures. Sweet sauteed squash, bitter broccoli rabe, and smoky bacon are irresistible partners for creamy cranberry beans.
In autumn, markets in Italy begin to fill with such staple winter vegetables as broccoli rabe. (I omit celery, sub broccoli rabe with swiss chard, and use low sodium-canned white beans. I also remove sausage from casing and crumble while cooking)
