Fillet Mignon Fall Salad Recipe – colorful and delicious Autumn inspired salad, which makes the perfect light and nutritious lunch/dinner.


Fillet mignon over a salad? This Fillet Mignon Fall Salad tastes amazing!

It is perfect for your holiday/celebration menu. Even for Valentine’s day!?

Fall flavors and light dressing and perfectly cooked,tender and juicy meat.

I have two favorite ways to cook fillet mignon.

Grilling, which I’m going to share in a separate post and in the oven, which I used in today’s recipe.

Nothing can stop me from grilling year round. But for this cut of meat, I prefer it seared on the stove top in a cast iron skillet and then cooked in the oven. This is what makes the meat perfectly juicy.

The cooking method is extremely simple.

Anyone can make it!

Go ahead and get some good quality fillet mignon. Whet is most important when cooking the meat is timing. You don’t want to overcook it and not to serve it rare.

I’ll include the suggested times for searing and then cooking the meat in the oven depending on the size of the fillet.


The rest is – mixed greens, pomegranate seeds (a staple in my kitchen this time of the year), blue cheese, onions, chopped hazelnuts and chopped apple.

You can use any dressing of your choice for this Fillet Mignon Fall Salad.

I would say vinaigrette is best.


I made a simple dressing with olive oil, balsamic vinaigrette, salt, pepper and fresh thyme.
