Despite what the current temperatures say, this Friday is the official first day of fall. Now while I was always a summer girl, fall has quickly become my favorite season of the year. The cooler temperatures, fall activities and all the holiday prep gets me excited. In preparation for our annual holiday dinners, I’m working on a few new recipes. Today’s pumpkin apple fall salad recipe is one of them. 

This simple fall salad recipe with homemade lemon honey dressing is not only easy to make, it stores and carries well for a healthy lunch option.  It’s tasty with a bit of a sweet treat with the cranberries, a vitamin booster from the pumpkin and who doesn’t love a crisp fall apple. I love adding walnuts or pecans and grilled chicken breast to make it a dinner salad.

If you happen to go apple picking, make sure to save some of your apples for more than just pies and other treats. Apples are perfect in fresh salad.

For storage, we are loving the Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE snack and salad set. It’s the perfect set for when I am on the go especially since I like to work at the local park when the weather is nice. The set is 100% leak proof* which perfect because I am definitely not a fan of soggy salad.  I love that I can throw it in the dishwasher and can use the compartments to warm up the pumpkin or if I add chicken to it. This Rubbermaid container set is also stain resistant which is another thing I love. I really don’t like stained containers. Pretty food and pretty containers make me happy. Can you relate? Plus the snack containers means I can carry a side of fruit and maybe a goodie for later in the afternoon when I need a pick me up. Hello chocolate.

    My favorite salad is just a classic garden salad, dressed up with bacon, parmesan cheese, and croutons!
