Favorite Fall Salads

Favorite Fall Salads - a collection of delicious salads featuring autumn produce!

If you’re like me, you’re starting to see glimpses of fall produce at the market.

Each time I go, it seems there’s something new. I’ve been picking up butternut and acorn squash, sweet potatoes, pears and early season apples. All these wonderful autumn season specialties have gotten me thinking about new recipes. I’ve got lots of ideas for fun fall posts, but I thought that I’d get you in the mood too, by sharing some of our favorite seasonal salads.

I love that salads can be a beginning, a side or a whole meal. Most of these selections also pair nicely with grilled, roasted or pan seared entrees. They’re perfect for weekday lunches or dinners but also are impressive for entertaining. I know you’ll be sure to find something here that strikes your fancy!

Arugula, Pear and Pom Salad - a fabulous fresh salad with fresh pears, pomegranate arils and juicy red grapes. A poppy seed and apple cider dressing is the perfect pairing!
