Autumn Harvest Salad with Maple Dijon Vinaigrette

by Rachel Baker on November 3, 2014

This looks like the perfect salad to help get rid of that after-Halloween-sugar-sweet blah feeling. I’m a big fan of supergreen mixes, so I may try that instead of just plain kale. I’m crazy excited about the idea of roasted butternut squash in a salad, with honeycrisps.

My mouth is watering and I haven’t even had breakfast yet, but I can’t wait to get to the store today so I can have this tonight as part of my dinner.

This healthy, fall-inspired Autumn Harvest Salad with Maple Dijon Vinaigrette, is the perfect way to enjoy all of the many amazing flavors of the season in one flavor-packed healthy salad. It is light enough to not leave you heavy and weighed down, but also hearty enough to be a meal on it’s own. This makes 2 large meal sized servings or 4 side salad-sized servings. I like to make this salad and dress the servings individually so I can enjoy the leftovers later. This was the perfect lunch during a long day of yoga teacher training, a few weeks back.

Lately, this is one of my most favorite ways to enjoy raw kale and I find even those not super crazy about the superfood green, absolutely love it in salad like this. The key is to massage the kale to get rid of the toughness and the bitterness. Yup, I said “massage”! No, you don’t have to whisper sweet nothings to it or buy it dinner first, just a good ‘ol fashioned no-strings-attached massage.
