Asian pears are one of the great gifts to fall salads– they give a little bit of sweetness and lots of crunch without making it "all about them". Recipe here.

When picking your vegetables for this fall salad, pick the brightest and most colorful things you can find. Rainbow chard! Rainbow carrots! Red and yellow beets! Anything goes. Recipe here.

10. Apple and Endive Salad with Gruyere

This recipe calls for frozen corn, which is a little unorthodox, but with the whole corn-cheese connection, I get it, and it kinda sounds amazing. Recipe here.

12. Roasted Pumpkin with Arugula and Gorgonzola Salad

Even if you're not totally sold on the gorgonzola dream, you can still make this salad– use something like a creamy goat cheese. Recipe here.

18. Shaved Broccoli and Brussels Sprouts Salad with Parmesean

The ceasar-y dressing for this salad *does* call for truffle oil, but if you don't already have it (or feel moved to buy it), you can just leave it out and it'll still be delicious. Recipe here.

25. Fall Salad with Roasted Apples and Maple Vinaigrette

Maple syrup is a really awesome ingredient for vinaigrettes– it gives you more flavor than if you were to use plain ol' sugar, but it's a bit more mild than honey. Recipe here.
