Rad Recipes: Autumn Harvest Salad with Roasted Squash, Brussels Sprouts, Caramelized Onions (GF, V*, VG*)

My friend Kelly (cupcakekelbel on Instagram) shared this AH-MAH-ZING salad with me to pass along to you. And let me tell you, it’s a beauty! Super hearty and filling without making you feel heavy. You could totally make a meal out of this on it’s own, or serve alongside a lean meat, fish, or pasta dish.

It takes a bit of time to prep because you are roasting the veggies, but hey, that glass of Chardonnay isn’t going to drink itself.

*For vegetarians and vegans, just leave out the bacon altogether.
