Think Seasonal: Harvest Salad with Pumpkin Honey Dressing

harvest salad2

Whenever I find myself stuck in a cooking rut, I remember to think seasonal. Eating seasonally, or buying produce that is in season based on growing zone, always serves as a way to add variety to my meal planning when I’m feeling fed up with my usual fare. In honor of the recent transition to crisp days, we’ve created a fall-inspired Harvest Salad with Pumpkin Honey Dressing perfect for indulging the need for heartier meals. Enjoy!

Recipe

  • 1 cup Kale
  • 1 cup mixed greens
  • 1/2 cup tomato
  • 1/4 cup cucumber
  • 1/4 cup carrot
  • 1/2 cup broccoli
  • 1/4 cup red grapes
  • 1/4 cup cranberry sauce

Pumpkin Honey Dressing

  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Wedderspoon Limited Edition Manuka Honey KFactor 22
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 medium clove garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon water

Steps:

Sauté broccoli + carrots  with a bit of non-stick olive oil spray and garlic powder (this makes the broccoli slightly charged and crunchy)! Do the same for the asparagus.

Mix all ingredients together and serve over the Harvest salad.
