Fabulous Fall Salads

By , SparkPeople Blogger
As the trees begin to change color, I'm reminded of so many dishes I love to cook. Fall is a busy time with back-to-school, sports, and after-school activities. To maintain a healthy rhythm, I turn to soups and salads that are quick and nutritious. Start with seasonal dark green leafy veggies at your local grocer or farmer's market. Create a base of arugula, lettuce, and/or kale, and top it off with peppers, corn, beets, and cucumbers. Mix in fresh herbs like basil, cilantro, and parsley to taste. Don't forget a splash of sweetness with apples pears, figs, and grapes. You can also add protein and crunch with pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, nuts, fish, boiled egg, and beans.
