Autumn Salad with Apple & Pecans
The ultimate fall salad! This apple pecans salad makes salad eating irresistibly good. Sweet apples, creamy goat cheese and maple pecans are tossed with fresh greens and an easy apple cider vinaigrette.
Servings: 6 Servings
- 8 cups mixed salad greens, such as spinach, arugula & red leaf lettuce
- 1 cup English cucumber slices halved
- 1 cup chopped apple (See Note 1)
- ½ cup Maple Pecans
- 2 ounces soft goat cheese (chevre) crumbled (See Note 2)
- 2 green onions thinly sliced
- 3 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar Dressing
In a large bowl, combine the salad greens, maple pecans, cucumber slices, chopped apple, goat cheese and green onions.
Toss with the dressing. Taste and add more dressing, if desired.
Note 1: Use your favorite crisp apple. I like to stick with sweeter apples (i.e., not Granny Smith). Gala, Jazz and Honeycrisp are favorites.
Note 2: I recommend crumbling the goat cheese immediately after removing it from the fridge. Once it starts to warm up, it becomes a little messier to crumble.
