This flavor packed fall harvest kale salad is the perfect hearty salad to make this season. It’s loaded with nourishing ingredients and truly packs in all the best fall flavors.
Fall Kale Salad
Most people eat salads during the warmer months, but this harvest kale salad was seriously made for the colder fall season.
Kale, roasted brussels sprouts, crisp apples, and feta cheese come together to form the most flavorful salad. The salad is crunchy, savory, and even sweet and can be served as a main dish or as a side to your favorite protein.
A simple meal prep
One of the reasons I love using kale as a base to my salads is because it makes the best leftovers! Any other green base would get soggy in the dressing after just one day, but kale holds its structure and actually tastes better the longer it marinates.
This delicious fall harvest salad would be a simple meal prep for the week to enjoy alone or with your favorite protein. It stays flavorful & crunchy, and is so satisfying.
Make it your own
I personally love this salad as is, but here are a few ways to change up this delicious kale salad-
- Add roasted sweet potatoes or butternut squash
- Add a grain, like quinoa or barley
- Replace the feta cheese with goat cheese or shaved parmesan
- Leave out the pecans and add another crunchy nut or seed, like walnuts or pumpkin seeds
- Use cranberries instead of pomegranate seeds
- Replace the apples with pears
The salad is truly perfect for this season, or any time of the year. It’s easy to make, gets better the longer it sits, and can be customized if needed. Seriously, you can’t go wrong.
I can’t wait for you all to try it! Be sure to tag me on Instagram with all of your remakes 🙂
I just made this for dinner and it was delicious! It’s a great combination of flavours that allow quite a bit of customization indeed. It took me longer than expected as I’m not a fast chopper, but it was worth it and I’ll definitely make it again!
I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Louise!
