These three recipes are quick and easy to make.

When the weather starts to get colder, we have a tendency to forget about salads, but there are a number of hardy fall and winter greens that are perfectly suited for a healthy meal. Top them with roasted root vegetables and creamy avocado, and suddenly you have a super delicious and seasonal dish. If you want to eat healthier this fall and winter, we’ve got three avocado-topped salads that you should try.
