Chopped Autumn Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing


When in doubt, I make a hearty nutrient dense salad. It always fills me up and gives me a boost of energy after a weekend of indulgence, or helps me ease into a cleaner diet after I’ve wandered off my healthy eating path. This salad is as always, loaded with seasonal superfoods.  Pomegranate for increase immunity and heart health,  apples for feeling fuller longer, walnuts and avocado for supple skin, oranges for a burst of Vitamin C, and nutritional yeast for energy enhancing B Vitamins.  Let’s get to tossing!

I got all of my ingredients from my local Door to Door Organics location, which was delivered straight to my door. It saved me time on shopping and the ingredients were crisp and from nearby farms. No factory or processed produce in my kitchen!
