Description

Crisp green salad with sweet fall apples, crunchy pecans and salty feta drizzled with homemade balsamic dressing.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SALAD:
  • 2 cups Mixed Lettuce Greens
  • 1 whole Apple, Cored And Chopped
  • ½ cups Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • ½ cups Pecans, Roughly Chopped
  • 4 slices Red Onion, Thinly Sliced (optional)
  • FOR THE HOMEMADE BALSAMIC DRESSING:
  • ½ cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ½ cups Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Brown Sugar
  • 1 clove Garlic, Minced
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper

Preparation

Place greens onto a large plate or into a wide salad bowl. Top with apples, feta, and pecans. Garnish with red onion on the side, if using. Drizzle with balsamic dressing just before serving.

For the dressing: Whisk all dressing ingredients together in a bowl until sugar dissolves and dressing comes together and emulsifies. This dressing recipe makes quite a bit more dressing than needed for this salad. Store leftovers in refrigerator in an airtight container or jar.

The dressing is so good. Loved the combination of ingredients.

My husband and I enjoyed this salad, though I did need a little more brown sugar in the dressing (I prefer balsamic vinaigrette’s on the sweeter side). I also used homemade sugared pecans for the nuts since that is what I had on hand. But very tasty and will eat it again!
