Harvest Salad

My husband said he never knew salad was good until he married me. That was music to my ears! I make a salad most every night as a side for dinner. I enjoy making homemade dressing and then keeping it on hand in the refrigerator for the week. This dressing was given to my mom from my Aunt Judy and I just made it this week for my best friend’s baby shower. Try it out this fall alongside a nice warm soup and crusty piece of bread.

Dressing Ingredients: 

1/3 cup honey

1/2 tsp. salt

A dash of white vinegar (I use a cap full)

1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

3 Tbsp. dijon mustard

1 cup vegetable oil

2 Tbsp. poppy seeds

To make the dressing: In a bowl mix honey, salt, vinegars, and mustard. Whisk together. Slowly whisk the oil into the honey mixture until combined. Stir in poppy seeds.

Salad Ingredients: 

1 bag Hearts of Romaine or a 5.5 oz. container of mixed greens, or mix and match.

1/2 red onion, sliced in rings

5 oz. package crumbled blue cheese

1 cup candied walnuts

2 pears, cut in strips with the skin on

To make the salad: In a large salad bowl combine all ingredients. Before serving toss with about half the dressing. Mis with tongs and serve.  Makes about 4-5 servings.

Katie’s Tips:

*I usually use candies walnuts, but I found cinnamon glazed pecans at Target and they worked well too. You can also use regular walnuts.

*I use a Measure, Mix, and Pour from The Pampered Chef to make dressings. It is a whisk inside a container that makes it easy to make and store salad dressing. You can buy it online for 13 bucks.

*I like using Anjou pears because they stay crisp in salads. But I’ve also used Bosc or Bartlett pears depending on what looks good at the grocery store.
