This stunning salad features all of the yummy ingredients that Autumn offers!

I love using delicata squash because it is super yummy but not commonly known compared to others. I love how convenient it is to make because you don’t have to peel it! The skin is edible and full of nutrients & antioxidants.

This salad, although healthy, is super comforting. It is bursting with fall flavor and colors.

I enjoyed a large serving of this for myself, but the recipe can absolutely be doubled or tripled to serve at a holiday or family dinner.

For the Salad
  • 3 cups arugula
  • 1 fig
  • 10 brussel sprouts
  • 1 delicata squash
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 2 tsp pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
For the Dressing
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard

Preheat air fryer to 375 F
Slice the delicata squash into 1' thick slices (you will only need a few pieces and can save the rest for another dish)
Slice the ends off of the brussels sprouts
Season the brussels sprouts and squash with salt, pepper, maple syrup, and olive oil then add them to the air fryer basket
Air fry for 7 minutes, then flip them or shake the basket, and cook for another 7 minutes. Note that the brussels sprouts may need an extra few minutes as the squash cooks faster!
Assemble the salad while you are waiting by creating a bed of arugula, adding the quartered fig, dried cranberries, and seeds
Whisk the salad dressing ingredients together in a bowl
Top the salad with the air fried veggies and feta cheese
Pour as much salad dressing as you would like then mix the salad together and enjoy!
  • If you don't have an airfryer, the veggies can be cooked in the oven at 450 F for 20-24 minutes (flipping halfway)
