chopped apple, celery, and goat cheese salad

This salad uses a bunch of fall veggies to make a hearty, fiber-rich meal that's perfect for meal prep. It's crunchy and has a little sweetness to it! My favorite are these homemade croutons that I use on a lot of my salad recipes. You just spray pieces of bread with olive oil and add a little garlic salt and paprika, then turn the oven to broil and the pieces of bread crisp up in just a few mins. This one is a must-try.

Hope you enjoy! xo


1 slice bread chopped into cubes (use any kind!)

1/2 tsp garlic salt

1/4 tsp paprika

1/2 cup chopped celery

1/2 cup chopped apple

2 tbsp goat cheese

1/4 chopped avocado

I made this for a Thanksgiving carry-in and none of it was left! I left off the croutons bc I'm gf and I wasn't sure gf ones would sit well over the course of the luncheon. I did add shredded cabbage and sunflower seeds. Oh and I roasted the chickpeas with the cauliflower. I was sad there wasn't any left for me to bring home 😂.
