Harvest Salad with Maple Walnut Vinaigrette

No ratings yet

Enjoy the best of the Fall season!

In celebration of autumn’s harvest, we put together this healthy salad and dressed it with an equally autumn-themed vinaigrette. Our Harvest Salad with Maple Walnut Vinaigrette is packed with nutrients from a variety of ingredients. For the salad greens, we used spinach; a rich source of minerals and vitamins K and A. As old-timer Popeye says, spinach keeps you strong to the finish! We added a pop of flavor to the salad with pears, skins included. Pear skin contains half of the fruit’s total dietary fibers and three to four times more phenolic phytonutrients than the pulp – so don’t forget to eat the whole thing! Another ingredient in this incredibly healthy salad is walnuts. They are a rich source of monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fats.
