I’m a sucker for a good fall salad, this is one of my favs!

This cozy fall salad combines baby kale, roasted kabocha squash, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, and feta all tossed in a tangy apple cider vinegar dressing.

Guys, it’s delicious!

Harvest Fall 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


  1. 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.
  2. Roast the squash for 15 minutes, remove from oven to toss, then roast for another 10-15 minutes, or until tender and golden.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 the desired amount of dressing and serve.
