Tasty fall salads packed full of seasonal produce like crisp apples, squash, kale and more! Take advantage of the autumn harvest with these salad recipes.
I’m sure you’re aware of my salad obsession by now, but did you know that fall is my absolute favorite season for salads?!
Indeed! I love spring salads with their light baby greens, asparagus and fresh berries and I definitely go crazy for fresh peaches, sweet corn and juicy tomatoes throughout the summer, but fall salads are simply the best. I’m talking big salads with flavorful goodies like dark leafy greens, crisp apples, root veggies and sweet roasted winter squash. Swoon!
Fall salads will always reign supreme in my book. That’s why I created this little roundup with some of the best fall salads.
I personally want to host a fall harvest SALAD party and make them all. Who wants to come?

Lastly, here is one of my favorite fall salad recipes with roasted kabocha squash and an amazing apple cider vinegar dressing. You could swap the kabocha squash with another winter squash (like butternut squash) or even roasted sweet potatoes. It will still be incredibly cozy and taste like fall in a bowl!
18 Delicious Fall Salads + Kabocha Squash Salad
- 4 cups baby kale,
- ½ medium kabocha squash
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 Tablespoons dried cranberries
- ¼ cup pumpkin spiced pepitas
- ¼ cup crumbled feta
- 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon fresh orange juice
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon sea salt, more if needed
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, more if needed
- Preheat oven to 375°. Wash the outside of the kabocha squash with warm water. Cut the squash in half and scoop out all the seeds. Cut the squash into 1-inch semicircles. Toss the squash pieces with oil, sprinkle with sea salt and spread on a roasting pan.
- Roast the squash for 15 minutes, remove from oven to toss, then roast for another 10-15 minutes, or until tender and golden.
- While squash is roasting, prepare the dressing by placing all ingredients except the olive oil in a small bowl. Whisk until combined, then slowly whisk in the olive oil. Set aside.
- To prepare the salads, place a portion of the kale on a plate, top with a portion of cranberries, pepitas and feta. Add the roasted kabocha slices, drizzle with desired amount of dressing and serve.

This blog post is glorious! Thank you for all the choices.
I just want to say I love the fact that there is a “in season” section, since I love making recipes with the seasons!
Thank you! 😀
I would love to see a post like this for the other seasons too! They are so helpful and since stores now have most ingredients year-round, it’s nice to know which ingredients are in season so I can take advantage of the freshest produce. Let me know if you plan on doing more seasonal salad posts!!!
Hi, Claire! Thanks for sharing, I’ll definitely keep that in mind!
