Salad as a meal feels like a summer thing: the kitchen stays cool, the crisp lettuce refreshes and the lightness won’t weigh you down in the heat. But that doesn’t mean a bowl of greens should be left off the menu for the remaining three seasons. With colorful fall fruits and hearty spinach leaves, this nutritious dish celebrates everything autumn and is a nice change of pace from the heavier soups and stews that start showing up on the table in September.

¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp. coconut oil

Baby spinach
2 cooked chicken breasts, chopped


  1. In a small bowl, mix together dressing ingredients.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all salad ingredients.
