Autumn Salad

This is surprisingly simple to make, and I love the sweet-tasting dressing. I've use toasted cashews instead of pecans for equally great results.


  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons shallots, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper


  • 1 bunch red leaf lettuce, chopped
  • 1 bunch green leaf lettuce, chopped
  • 2 red delicious apples- skin on
  • 3/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • 3/4 cup toasted, chopped pecans


  1. Put dressing ingredients into shaker and refrigerate.
  2. Place lettuce on 8 salad plates. Cut apples into thin wedges and place on lettuce. Sprinkle pecans and blue cheese evenly over salad.
  3. Drizzle chilled dressing over salads.


  • If you prefer, you can toss the salad ingredients in a large bowl and then dish out individual salads. It "looks" prettier when you can fan out the apples on each salad.
