For the salad:

  • 6 cups mixed greens (such as baby spinach, arugula, and kale)
  • 1 cup diced butternut squash, roasted
  • 1 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1 medium apple, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup toasted pecans or walnuts

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. If desired, toast the pecans or walnuts. Heat a dry skillet over medium heat and add the nuts. Stir occasionally until they turn slightly golden and aromatic, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and let them cool.
  2. In a large salad bowl, combine the mixed greens, roasted butternut squash, pomegranate arils, apple slices, and toasted nuts. If using, sprinkle crumbled feta or goat cheese on top.
  3. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey or maple syrup, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  4. Drizzle the vinaigrette dressing over the salad and toss gently to coat all the ingredients.
  5. Serve the Harvest Salad immediately and enjoy the vibrant medley of flavors and textures. This salad can be enjoyed as a side dish alongside your favorite protein or as a wholesome main course on its own.
