How do you feel about salads in the fall? I love salads all year around, and fall has some amazing produce that can be showcased in a salad. This Vegan Fall Harvest Salad with Sweet Potatoes, Brussels Sprouts and Lentils uses all seasonal ingredients, I picked up all of the ingredients from my local farmers market.
This salad takes advantage of all the best fall seasonal produce - brussels, radishes, mint and sweet potatoes. It is super easy to make and tastes fresh and nourishing. I shred my brussels sprouts using my food processor. You could also use a mandolin or buy them pre-shredded. Shredding brussels is great because you can leave the stems on so it eliminates waste.
This salad has a simple vinaigrette dressing. Making your own dressings at home is one of the best money savings hacks and it's so easy. Plus homemade salad dressings usually have much less sugar than the store.
This salad is a complete meal. It has packed with fiber, protein and healthy fats. You get an array of of antioxidants from the vegetables like anti cancer sulforaphane. Lentils and pumpkin seeds provide a protein source. I paired my salad with avocado for extra healthy fats.
This makes 3-4 servings of salad
+ optional toppings like avocado
