**What is a harvest salad? **

A harvest salad captures the essence of fall by combining a medley of ingredients that celebrate the bountiful autumn harvest. In this Low-Carb recipe, we bring together Brussels sprouts, pumpkin, kale, beetroot, avocado, and a delightful tahini dressing for a nutritious and satisfying meal.

How to customize this recipe?

One of the joys of creating a harvest salad is the opportunity to customize it to your taste. While our recipe features a blend of Brussels sprouts and pumpkin, feel free to experiment with other seasonal vegetables like butternut squash, broccoli, or sweet potatoes. You can also add your favorite nuts or seeds for extra crunch and flavor. Adjust the dressing's sweetness and spiciness to your liking, or swap it to one that suits your palate. The kale can be swapped for spinach or mixed greens, allowing you to adapt the salad to your preferences.

How to store this salad for meal-prep?

Meal prepping is a fantastic way to stay on track with your Low-Carb autumn recipes. To store this Low-Carb harvest salad, follow these steps: First, keep the dressing separate from the salad to prevent wilting. Place the salad components (kale, roasted vegetables, beetroot, nuts, and seeds) in an airtight container, arranging them in layers to maintain freshness. When you're ready to enjoy your meal, drizzle the tahini dressing over the salad, add the avocado, and toss it together for a satisfying and nutritious Low-Carb autumn feast.

    Beets are not keto friendly…

      Most anything can be accommodated on a keto diet in small amounts. The flavor packed into only 40 grams of beets will likely add a fantastic touch to this salad. No, you likely can't eat an entire beat and stay in ketosis but I find that higher carb foods diced very small and spread across a dish can give me the flavor that will keep me on this diet. Don't deprive yourself all good things. I sometimes skip a meal and snacks just so I can eat a peach every blue moon.
