Favorite Fall Salad Jump To Recipe This post may contain affiliate links.Please read my disclosure policy.This roasted sweet potato and arugula salad recipe features some of my favorite fall flavors and always tastes so delicious this time of year.
Things are finally (fi-na-lly!) cooling off here in Barcelona this week after the summer’s unrelenting heat wave, which of course instantly has me craving all of my nostalgic fall faves…including this yummy roasted sweet potato and arugula salad.♡ It’s a simple one that you could easily make anytime of year.But the combination of roasted potatoes, tart dried cranberries and toasted pecans always feels so quintessentially “fall” to me.
And when combined with fresh peppery arugula, creamy avocado, tangy goat cheese (or whatever cheese you love best), and a zippy lemon dressing, this salad hits the perfect balance between cozy and hearty yet still fresh and light, which feels just perfect for these sometimes-warm, sometimes-cool days we’re enjoying right now as we move into the new season ahead.Here in our house, we most often serve this as an entrée salad, but it would also make a lovely side dish for a dinner or holiday meal if you’d like.And if you feel like adding in an extra protein, some grilled chicken or bacon would be delicious mixed in too.
