In many places across the country, it may feel like Winter has already arrived. If you're not feeling quite up to a Winter Solstice dance, this Winter Harvest salad might just put you in-the-mood for some hygge and hot drinks by the fire. Who can resist a maple-cinnamon-bacon combination? Vegetarians can sub bacon for a sprinkling of their favourite protein source. 

Serves 2

For the Salad:

  • 3 cups mixed greens
  • ½ butternut squash, sliced and roasted (or use leftover roasted vegetables!)
  • 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (or substitute your protein of choice)
  • 1 gala apple, finely sliced
  • ½ avocado, cubed
  • 2 tbsp hemp hearts

For the Dressing:

  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard


  1. In a large bowl, combine the salad ingredients and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the dressing ingredients, whisking until smooth.
  3. Drizzle the dressing onto the salad, mix and serve!
