Made with the finest produce of the season — think rich roasted butternut squash, ruby pomegranate seeds and emerald-green kale, just for starters — these 20 Delicious Salads for Fall have us forgetting that macaroni and cheese even exists. Well … almost.

    I have fresh pomegranates from my neighbors tree, but I never eat them because they are labor intensive. But I think it will be worth it for this salad! So beautiful!!

      Heather, pomegranates are super easy to release from their pods. Look it up on google. The wooden spoon method really works.

    I’m obsessed with all your round-ups. And thank goodness for this one, because I tend to get a little lazy about salad consumption in the fall and winter because “there’s just no fresh or local produce!” Thanks for reminding me of all the fall veggies and fruits that are salad-worthy!
