Salad:

  • 4 cups chopped lettuce
  • 1 large Fuji or Honeycrisp apple, sliced thin
  • ⅓ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds or chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup goat cheese crumbles

Vinaigrette:

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 ½ tsp honey
  • 1 tsp Dijon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste.

Directions:

  1. Make the dressing: In a cup or jar, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, honey, mustard, and salt until well blended. Season to taste with pepper.
  2. Just before serving, chop the apple into thin, bite-sized pieces. Place your greens in a large serving bowl. Top with sliced apple, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds/ pecans. Use a fork to crumble the goat cheese over the salad.
  3. Drizzle the salad with just enough dressing to lightly coat the leaves once tossed (you probably won’t need all of it).

Notes : Feel free to toast the nuts/ seeds for added flavor.
