Happy Harvest Fall Salad

This bright, colorful and flavorful fall salad is easy to throw together using a few pre-prepped ingredients and a simple vinaigrette.

Yield: 1 Serving

Ingredients for salad:

  • 2-3 handfuls arugula
  • 1/2 cup chopped/cooked butternut squash (we used a Trader Joe’s bag that is pre-peeled and chopped, just microwave for a couple of minutes)
  • 2 Tbsp pomegranate seeds
  • 1 beet, roasted/peeled/sliced (we used the brand Love Beets, which come pre-roasted and peeled for convenience)
  • ~3 Tbsp goat cheese
  • ~3 Tbsp pumpkin seeds (we used a seed blend from the brand Go Raw, but you can add any nut/seed for a little crunch)
  • ~2 Tbsp balsamic vinaigrette, drizzled

Ingredients for Balsamic vinaigrette (this makes enough for several salads):

  •  1/2 cup avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • ~3 Tbsp honey


Combine all salad ingredients in a bowl.  Mix ingredients for dressing and toss preferred amount with salad.
