Our contributor, Hayley, has rounded up 15 autumn salad recipes that are fresh, seasonal, beautiful, and wonderfully delicious.

15 Amazing Autumn Salad Recipes | gimmesomeoven.com #fall

I eat a lot of salads during the summer. So many salads, that when fall rolls around, I feel like I can scale back — take a little salad vacation if you will. Those leafy greens can wait, I’ve got pot roast and stews to consume.

But these salads are an exception.

They’ve got jewel-toned root vegetables, warm spices, and tart apples. They’re vibrant, healthy, and best of all, they’re surprisingly comforting. They’re the perfect way to make the most of autumn’s bounty, while getting a good dose of veggies. If I didn’t eat any of these salads this season, I’d totally OD on pasta, and that wouldn’t be pretty for my waistline.

So I present to you 15 of my favorite autumn salads. From an autumnal take on the traditional cobb salad, to a crispy kale salad with brie grilled cheese croutons (yes, say it with me in your best Homer Simpson voice, brie grilled cheese croutons), these salads are sure to inspire you during these cooler months.

I may not need that salad vacation after all…

    I am drooling! Kale makes the best greens for a salad.. it has a so much flavor. I just bookmarked a few of those.

    I love this roundup! All of these look amazing. Also, perfect timing – I was just looking through my salad pinterest board for some less summery-y salads.

    Love fall salads, these are gorgeous!

    Geez, I need a good salad! I’m so bad at eating them in the fall. Summer is easy, but during Fall, I start already reaching for warm, comfort foods. Thanks for the reminder :)

    These are such refreshing (and healthy) options, especially given the tendencies of many people this time of year. Not to sound judgmental at all….but I definitely can find it challenging to ward off all the roasts and just about every genius concoction including pumpkins or apples. Veggies can sometimes take a backseat, but this is a delicate reminder that the fall/winter months don’t have to mean indulging in foods that directly impact the waistline. The only problem? Trying to figure out which salad to start with…these all look great!
