Easy Fall Harvest Salad

Hey It-Girls, happy October; I can't believe how quickly this year has flown by but I'm so excited for the cosy season and all that comes with it! When it comes to healthy eating, there's one thing I've just never been that into and it's a cold salad. Cold lunches in general have never really appealed to me which is why I love autumn dishes so much. Fall is the perfect time for warm harvest salads and honestly this is probably the only time in the year where I'll actually eat a salad bowl and be satisfied. Not only are they nutrient rich and delicious but they are incredibly filling and warming - exactly what we all need as it gets colder and we start craving comfort foods again. This year I've definitely been experimenting a lot more with seasonal eating as well as cycle syncing (which I talk about non-stop)! So I wanted to share this salad recipe which I've been loving lately so you can try it for yourselves! It's perfect for the Autumn season as well as the luteal phase of your cycle (for cycle syncing huns like myself). Check out my easy fall harvest salad recipe below:




Autumnal Harvest Salad

 

Serving Size: 1


Dietary Info: Vegetarian


Prep Time: 40 mins

 

Main Ingredients:

  • 1 handful spinach leaves

  • 1/3 butternut squash (cubed)

  • feta (to taste)

  • cranberries (dried) (to taste)

  • 1 tsp flax seeds

  • 1 tsp mixed nuts

  • 1/2 apple (sliced)

Extras:

Depending on what leftovers I have in my fridge, I like to add a few extras to my salad bowls to avoid food waste - take these or leave them out as they aren't strictly for the season.


  • mushrooms

  • sweetcorn

  • sundried tomatoes

 

Instructions:


  1. Spread the butternut squash out on a baking tray and toss with olive oil

  2. Season with sea salt, black pepper and mixed herbs

  3. Roast for 25-30 mins in a preheated oven until lightly browned and tender

  4. Meanwhile prep the rest of salad starting with the spinach leaves base

  5. If you are adding any other veg that needs heating/cooking, prep this and add over the spinach leaves once cooked

  6. Take out the butternut squash and add to the salad bowl once slightly cooled

  7. Sprinkle over dried cranberries, feta and flax seeds (to taste)

  8. Drizzle over your salad dressing of choice (mine is a homemade combo of honey, chilli oil and lemon)

  9. Enjoy!
