Images of Fall usually conjure up warm sweaters, boots, hot beverages and soups. We don’t often think about eating something as chilly as a salad unless it’s summer. Well, the Fall Salad is here to stay and not only do they use delicious vegetables that are the epitome of Autumn, but they are colorful too! Here are 9 mouthwatering salads you need to make this Fall.

This salad has everything that’s right with Fall: cranberries, pecans, gorgonzola cheese, pears, fried shallots and shaved brussels sprouts. The only cooking required is toasting up the shallots to a nice and crispy texture, before adding to your salad and topping with homemade vinaigrette. I can see this as a great way to sneak in some brussels sprouts with the kids!
