This hearty fall harvest salad with a tangy honey mustard dressing is packed with crisp apple, perfectly roasted vegetables like carrots & parsnips, fresh greens, crunchy pumpkin seeds for texture & all topped off with a tangy honey mustard dressing!



Fall Harvest Salad

  • 4 parsnips, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp pink salt
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 1/2 cup pickled beets (you can also roast raw beets with the carrots & parsnips if you would prefer)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 package of mixed greens (I used spring mix)
  • 1/3 cup feta or goat cheese (optional; I left this out)

Tangy Honey Mustard Dressing

  • 1/2 cup avocado oil mayo (you can make this yourself or I get this one from Costco, use a vegan mayo for a vegan option)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 12 tsp apple cider vinegar, to thin out
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp pink salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • dash of filtered water, if needed to thin out


Fall Harvest Salad

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 F & line a baking tray with parchment paper & place the diced carrots & parsnips on it, coating them evenly in the avocado oil, pink salt, & pepper.
  2. Roast the veggies until they are fork tender, mine took about 35-40 minutes.
  3. Let cool while you assemble the rest of the salad & the dressing.
  4. In a large salad bowl add the greens topped with the rest of the ingredients for the salad.
  5. Top with the roasted veggies, tangy honey mustard dressing, & feta or goat cheese if using.

Tangy Honey Mustard Dressing

  1. Add all of the ingredients to combine in a small bowl. Start with 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar, add another tsp for some extra tanginess or a dash of water to thin out if needed. Drizzle over the prepared salad & enjoy!


*this salad is great with or without the cheese, I left it out this time.
