Fall may be around the corner, but the weather still feels like summer. So, with Colorado temps in the 90’s this weekend, we’re indulging in these autumn-ish salads to get us through the final days of summer.
1. Apple Pistachio Quinoa Salad
Recipe by: Chelsea's Messy Apron
Does anything sound more delicious than quinoa, pears, pistachios, apples, and dried cranberries on a bed of leafy greens? The answer is no. Whip up a large bowl of Chelsea's Apple Pistachio Quinoa Salad to get you through the final (hopefully) heat wave of 2018. Oh and, we're being extra liberal with the homemade lemon poppyseed dressing for a tangy and zesty topping!
2. Colorful Beet Salad with Carrot, Quinoa & Spinach
Recipe by: Cookie + Kate
We love Kate for her healthy and delicious plant-based recipes, and this salad is hitting all our taste buds in the best spots! A salad packed with wonderful ingredients, including edamame, quinoa, avocado, carrots, and beets, this recipe is perfect for lunch or dinner this weekend.
3. Butternut Squash and Cranberry Quinoa Salad
Recipe by: Little Broken
A heavy and hearty salad packed with all of fall's best produce, this salad by Little Broken is flavorful, colorful, and packed with excellent nutrients. Make a large salad for dinner on Sunday night and have the rest for leftovers early next week!
4. Fall Salad with Beluga Lentils, Grapes and Roasted Pumpkin
Recipe by: The Awesome Green
We love this vegan salad full of lentils, grapes, and other delicious fall ingredients. If you haven't tried beluga lentils before, we definitely recommend it. These black lentils pack a serious punch with tons of fiber, protein, and iron.
