Description

I didn’t know what else to name this salad. And its name doesn’t really matter, anyway. It’s so darn delicious.

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces, weight Salad Greens (spring Mix)
  • 2 whole Apples, Cored And Sliced Very Thin
  • ½ cups Pecan Halves
  • ¼ cups Dried Cherries
  • 6 ounces, weight Blue Cheese, Cut Into Chunks
  • 1 Tablespoon (heaping) Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup (more To Taste)
  • 1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar (more To Taste)
  • ¼ cups Olive Oil
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

Add greens, apple slices, pecan halves, dried cherries, and blue cheese chunks into a large salad bowl.

In a small jar, mix Dijon, maple syrup, vinegar, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Put the lid on the jar and shake well to mix.

Pour a little salad dressing over the top of the salad and toss to combine. Taste salad and add more salad dressing to taste.

Serve with french fries. Just kidding. I think.

I made this salad for luncheon at church. A huge hit.
Used cranberries not cherries. Also used candied pecans from Trader Joes. I made the dressing day before and it was great. Used more real maple syrup…from Trader Joes.

I took this to a “girls night in” dinner tonight. There were only 6 of us, but we polished it off. It’s a keeper for sure. Thanks, Ree.
