Super & Amazing Seasonal Salads!
These ain’t your ordinary salads! See how the famous foods and flavors of fall shine in these fresh & filling super salads!
With a unique maple mustard vinaigrette and exciting ingredient list, this salad is an excellent way to enjoy the more savory side of pumpkin. The magic of this salad is its combination of pumpkin, red bell pepper, avocado, pine nuts and feta over spinach. With such an intriguing melody of flavors, this recipe is living proof that salads are a great opportunity to be adventurous in the kitchen!
When a salad has bacon, we’re listening. Add in our best fresh New York State Apples and we’re sold! Fresh apples, sweet cranberries, crunchy walnuts, savory bacon and flavor-filled feta cheese create a mouth-wateringly loaded salad that is satisfying even just to look at! Topped off with a simple but elegant Honey Dijon dressing, this lunch, dinner, side or meal-prep is ready in as long as it takes to cut apples, cook bacon and mix it all together! [about 15 minutes!]
It’s easy to see why this yellow-shelled winter squash is all-the-rage! When roasted, the aptly named “spaghetti squash” pulls apart into a stringy, spaghetti-like texture. It’s mild flavor then can do whatever traditional spaghetti does but with half the calories per cup than traditional pasta! This creative adaptation mixes everything we love in a Greek salad with spaghetti squash for a certainly satisfying lunch or dinner filled with vitamins and nutrients that [apart from roasting the squash] comes together in no-time!
Calling all flavor fanatics! We have a must-try on our hands! This flavor-factory stars roasted butternut squash alongside quinoa, cranberries, feta and pomegranate seeds with scallion, parsley and pumpkin seeds for even more “oomph”! If you can’t find the pomegranate molasses, some balsamic glaze will do just fine!
We love it when broccoli makes its way into salads. The same goes to cauliflower, asparagus & brussels sprouts! In this salad, spicy roasted sweet potato and broccoli join the ever-exotic farro with spinach, red onion and toasted walnut in an exploration of taste and texture! Topped with an oh-so-dreamy cider honey mustard vinaigrette and a little feta, you definitely be going back for seconds.
Light and bright, this is one of the sweeter salads on our list. Tangy tangerine, crunchy hemp seeds, earthy walnuts and smooth, creamy avocado shine atop a bed of lightly-seasoned, shredded brussels sprouts. It’s not until you hit it with delectably-sweet maple cider vinaigrette that it fits right in with all your fall favorites!
Possibly just as visibly satisfying as it is tasty, this meal-in-itself salad lets spicy roasted carrots, lentils and an interesting tahini vinaigrette work their magic free from other distractions. An easy weeknight meal because of fast cooking carrots and lentils, this recipe is vegan, packed with nutrition and is a gorgeous addition to any dinner table.
Mushrooms have a wonderful way of adding an earthy heartiness to any meal, especially when creamy goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette are involved! In this salad we find sauteed mushrooms assembled with sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts and goat cheese atop your choice of greens. Top with balsamic vinaigrette and you’ve got a filling, flavorful, elegant, meatless dinner ready in about 25 minutes!
