Have you ever woken up thinking about lunch? That was me this morning. I must have been dreaming of this salad! Lately I’ve spent some time online hunting for Fall salad recipes to make for family get togethers. With all of the hearty flavors of this season I think Fall salads just get forgotten. After finding so many variations I was excited to try a few.
I’ve now had two failed attempts at multi serving family salads, they just went soggy, so I decided to have another go at it for lunch today. Single serving only! I combined a number of Fall ingredients and desperately hoped it would go well.
Looked great. Tasted great. Success!
2 Cups baby spring mix (you could also use spinach and arugula)
1/4 sweet potato, baked in skin
1/4 Gala apple
2 Tbsp dried cranberries and candied walnuts
2 Tbsp feta cheese
2 Tbsp Pomegranate Blueberry Vinaigrette Dressing from Litehouse
I am thrilled this turned out so great! Moral of the story, plate and dress it separately per person. I completed my lunch with a serving of the apple, cranberry, and almond coleslaw I made for our family Thanksgiving yesterday. The recipe is pretty good for a healthy slaw. What a delicious lunch!
Plus a mommy perk, my little enjoyed the baked sweet potato too! He made a massive mess and got a mid day bath which he of course loved. Maybe the mess was on purpose? Let’s hope not and just continue believing he’s cute and innocent.
Enjoy your Monday, and let me know if you try a Fall salad or even the coleslaw recipe out for yourself, I’d love to know how it goes!
Love Always, K
