Fall salads are one of my favorite things about eating in the fall, along with pumpkin and sweet potatoes, of course. A mix of fall fruits (apples, pears), some crunchy walnuts, and a little creamy goat cheese or salty blue cheese, mixed in a slightly sweet and slightly spicy salad dressing. Yum!

This mixed green apple and crisp almond salad is a combination of mixed greens, apple (I used Honeycrisp), red onion, and goat cheese drizzled with an apple cider vinaigrette. A crisp and crisp crisp almond takes this salad from good to out of this world! You can add a little cayenne pepper to the brittle if you want a little spice.

Julienne the apple makes the salad look much more visually appealing.

Soak the onions in a little ice water for 5-10 minutes if they are too stung.

Be sure to check out the Apple and Pear Salad with Maple Bacon and Pecans and Blueberry Vinaigrette. It's another fall salad winner!
