The Spicy Olive’s Harvest Salad

Here is a great fall salad, full of the delicious flavors of an autumn harvest. This salad is easy to change up depending on what’s in your refrigerator. A delicious addition would be any leftover squash from our The Spicy Olive’s Roasted Butternut Squash!

A number of balsamic vinegar and olive oil combinations would work here; our Pumpkin Spice white balsamic vinegar with a mild extra virgin, single varietal olive oil, our Black Mission Fig or Cranberry Pear balsamic with Blood Orange olive oil would be my favorites on this salad!
