This use-it-all fall salad is a perfect recipe to get started with whatever produce you have on hand. The combination of sweet squash, earthy potatoes and melt-in-you-mouth romanesco is taken to the next level with crunchy squash seeds, crispy potato skins and lemon zest–all over a delightful bed of greens. Optional, but highly recommended lemon, garlic tahini dressing brings it all together. Sure to be a fall favorite, you can keep this easy, plant-based recipe in regular rotation.
Although these particular plants are featured in this recipe, I encourage you to experiment with whatever produce you have available. Leftover beet greens from making beet root soup? Use ‘em up here! Also feel free to switch up cooking methods for any of the ingredients–steam romanesco, air fry potatoes, whatever gets this salad on the table! Note: I used cooked greens here but have also included a variation for raw massaged kale.
If you want to get a head start, you can prep the tastiest toasted squash seeds before beginning the recipe, perhaps batch soaking / toasting all your squash seeds for the week.
