    I love hearty salads. My go to is arugula, walnuts, avocados, roasted butternut squash, dried cranberries, and crumbled goat cheese with olive oil and apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper. Love it! Your salad evokes all things fall. It sounds delicious!

      Hi Kelly, your salad sounds sensational and I love the addition of the avocado, and am also a huge arugula fan. I really appreciate the expanse variety that has become so popular in salads today, such as butternut squash and dried cranberries. I can remember a time when people thought it was so fancy when I would add apples, nuts and cheese on top a salad years ago… creativity has come a long way in the culinary genre!
