Monday Meals: Autumn Glow Salad

Cooking Light brings us this fall salad extravaganza. Loaded with protein, fiber and flavor, this recipe takes advantage of the bounty of squash and cool weather greens. Cumin warms up and rounds out a satisfying, savory plate.

Lentils are among the most humble and nutritious pantry items you could find. These protein-packed legumes pair wonderfully with roasted butternut squash and peppery arugula to deliver a plant-powered salad boasting over 50% of your daily fiber and one-third of your daily potassium goal. Butternut squash is an excellent source of eye-healthy vitamin A, and a good source of immune-boosting vitamin C and blood pressure supporting potassium.
This recipe goes with: Butternut-Kale Frittata, Poached Egg Power Bowls
