In the summer I like to enjoy salads with raw cooling ingredients while fresh summer produce is abundant at farmer’s markets. As fall comes along and through the winter, I like to add cooked warming ingredients to my salad like roasted butternut squash, roasted sweet potatoes, quinoa, rice and crispy chickpeas. This is why I created Sweet Fall Salad.
