This hearty Autumn Harvest Salad with a creamy, pumpkin dressing is perfect for mealtimes this fall --- whether it's a simple, quick lunch or a more elaborate dinner celebration. It starts with the O Organics®' Half and Half salad blend: half Spinach, half Spring greens. And then it is topped with:
- COOKED QUINOA
- EDAMAME BEANS
- AUTUMN GLORY APPLE PIECES
- DRIED CHERRIES
- PRIMO GOAT CHEESE
- A TANGY PUMPKIN DRESSING
Safeway is the perfect place for one-stop shopping with their huge variety of O Organics' items, limited edition seasonal items for the holidays (like this fun wine advent calendar!), beautiful florals (see below) and great prices. And if you don't want to actually go IN the store, Safeway also offers Grocery Delivery and DriveUp & Go™ for convenient ways to shop!
Almost everything you need for this salad is from one of Safeway's exclusive house brands --- O Organics®, Open Nature®, and Signature Select. The best news? Safeway proudly stands behind their exclusive brands with a 100% money-back guarantee!
The dressing is a creamy, tangy mixture of organic pumpkin puree, spicy brown mustard, olive oil, pure maple syrup, and spices. Just whisk it together in a small bowl. It's like a seasonal twist on honey mustard!
This meal makes a perfect kid's plate too --- with Autumn Glory apple slices, steamed edamame, cooked quinoa, freeze-dried mango pieces, and salad. Just make sure that you chop the pecans smaller, depending on the age of your child. You could also serve some rotisserie chicken with it and extra pumpkin dressing for dipping.
