Market Fresh: Fall Salad

The delicious toppings for salad during the fall season make some of the best salads. Recently I tried a new dressing on a bed of mixed greens, sliced apples, chopped walnuts, craisins, and goat cheese. It was wonderful! And really, the whole salad was brought together with the creamy, tangy, richness of the goat cheese (don't skip it!). Everyone enjoyed the combination of flavors and the large salad bowl was empty at the end of the meal.



HONEY DIJON VINAIGRETTE (I doubled this for a great big salad)
