Raise your hand if you’ve already been over-indulging in the Halloween goodies a bit! I know I have.
But, I’ve also been loving fall salads and life is all about balance, right?
Colorful with bright flavors, this one is a new favorite.
The blood oranges and pomegranates came in the box of “Freaky Fruits” courtesy of Melissa’s Produce. They were probably the least freaky items in the sense that they’re fruits we’ve had before, but that color just makes a bloody fun salad for this time of year!
This salad is pretty simple – minimal chopping involved! – and I love the variety of textures and colors. It’s all topped off with a super simple vinaigrette, too – just add everything to a jar and shake well!
