The perfect salad for fall, these roasted harvest bowls are loaded with maple turmeric chicken, crisp apple slices, Brussels sprouts and butternut squash.


  • 2 maple turmeric chicken breasts, sliced
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar Brussels sprouts
  • 1 large butternut squash, peeled and chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon avocado or olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 crisp apple, thinly sliced
  • baby spinach
  • roasted butternut squash seeds or toasted pepitas*
  • cinnamon and cayenne pepper (optional)

Apple Cider Dressing:

  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons of whole grain mustard
  • 2 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Add chopped butternut squash chunks to a baking sheet with oil, sea salt and pepper. Feel free to add a sprinkle of cinnamon and cayenne as well. Toss to coat and pop in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until squash is tender.
  2. While butternut squash is roasting, make dressing by adding all ingredients into a blender and blending until smooth.
  3. To make the salad bowls, add a base of baby spinach to two bowls. Top with 1 piece of maple turmeric chicken, 1/2 cup roasted Brussels sprouts, 1/2 cup roasted butternut squash and apple slices. Drizzle on the apple cider dressing and top with roasted seeds.


*For roasted butternut squash seeds: preheat oven to 325°. Remove any remaining strings from the seeds and toss with a 1/2 teaspoon oil and a pinch of sea salt. Roast for 30-40 minutes or until crunchy and golden.
