Salad, prepared as a starter, side, or main course, can serve as a healthy and hearty option all year long. While it's often thought of as a summertime staple, mix in the rich bounty of autumn's harvest (think: sweet potatoes, squash, apples, and more!) and you've got yourself a satisfying and savory dish that doesn't take long to make!

Tossing a salad is a great chance to get those creative juices flowing. So slice and dice away as you throw together a nutritious meal that's so much more than just your garden variety salad.
