Recipe Notes
Tips to make this Beautiful Autumn Salad!

  1. Sub feta, goat or gorgonzola for blue cheese.
  2. Any kind of apple will work.  Honey Crisp and Fuji are my faves.
  3. Add dried cranberries for an additional kick of color.  (I bought them and forgot to toss them in...  ugh).
  4. Toss right before serving.  This salad wilts rather quickly.
  5. You will NOT use all the dressing.  Use about 1/4 cup.  Taste and adjust if needed.
  6. Makes enough for 6 side dish servings.  Easily doubles with no need to make additional dressing!
