Fall Harvest Salad

This is the Fall season in a salad! It’s one of my go to salads in the fall and winter.

Fall Harvest Salad
Real whole ingredients- Acorn Squash, cranberries, millet, and kale

What’s great about this salad is that you can use any squash, and during the fall and winter I will cook a squash as part of my batch cooking on Sunday’s so I can easily incorporate it into dishes through out the week. Winter squash is a great source of carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals.
