A delightful salad combining crisp apples, salty bacon, and toasted pecans, all enrobed in a fabulous Maple-Dijon Vinaigrette. Ingredient amounts are a rough estimate, simply make to taste!
1 large salad bowl full of mixed spring greens or spinach
1 large apple (I love honeycrisp) chopped
4–5 slices bacon cooked crisp and crumbled
1/2 cup toasted pecans
Maple Dijon Vinaigrette:
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
4 tablespoons canola oil (or sub your fave oil like avocado, olive, etc.)
1/2 tablespoons grated onion
1/2 clove garlic, grated on microplane or fine-hole grater
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1 pinch black pepper
To make dressing, combine all ingredients in a mason jar and shake vigorously until combined. Set aside.
Combine all salad ingredients and drizzle on dressing to taste, tossing to coat everything.
This salad is also great with pears, toasted almonds, and avocado! Or try any other combination that sounds great to you.
