Well friends, it’s a new day and since I ate my weight in cinnamon rolls yesterday leading up to the election I thought I should even it out with salad today. You know, balance! This salad is brimming with gorgeous tender greens, roasted fall veg and crisp green beans all drenched in a sour cream and chive dressing that makes it feel a bit more indulgent.

While I personally love pairing the rustic roasted potatoes and tender delicata squash in this salad I bet it would also be pretty amazing with acorn squash or sweet dumpling squash. You know, for when delicata becomes scarce at the market.

This salad is one that my kids get pretty excited about too! While they tend to act like they don’t even see the greens on their plate  they really love dipping the big chunks of golden roasted veggies and green beans into the sour cream + chive dressing. I mean, they literally scarf down plates full of straight up vegetables without complaint and you just can’t beat that!
