Harvest Salad with Pumpkin Vinaigrette

Adapted from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition

Salads aren’t just for summer. They’re a simple way to add nutritious, seasonal ingredients to your diet year-round.  You can also personalize this dish by adding your favorite fruits, nuts, and protein.

Cook’s Review:   “This easy-to-make recipe makes a great side or main dish salad.  I used sunflower seeds in place of pumpkin seeds and omitted the pecans. Fresh cranberries were not in season, so I used organic cranberry sauce. The results were delicious.”  ~ Sarah W.

Makes 4 side salads or 2 meal salads.  There will be vinaigrette left over for more salads.
