Four Fresh Fall Salads to Brighten Your Season

You may have already been living in pumpkin-spice paradise for a few weeks, but the first official day of fall is later this week, September 22.

To kick off the season, we’re sharing some fresh fall recipes! If you’re tired of the same old sandwich for lunch, this post is for you. These colorful and delicious salads will be a fantastic addition to your workday routine!

Kale and Cara Cara Orange Salad
This salad is a superfood dream featuring pumpkin seeds, kale, and Cara Cara Navel oranges. These unique, pink-fleshed oranges feature 2-3 times more phytonutrients than a typical Navel orange. This whole salad is bursting with flavor and antioxidants to keep you healthy this season.

This salad brings together the quintessential fall flavors of apples and pecans. There’s no better time to enjoy fresh apples than right now. It’s the heart of harvest season in Washington!

Maple Roasted Pumpkin Salad
Don’t let the fresh pumpkin deter you! Although you may be used to pumpkin only in its pureed form, it can also be enjoyed roasted. The flavor and texture are similar to that of a roasted butternut squash or sweet potato. Paired with delightful maple flavor notes, this salad will taste like a bite of fall joy.
