Sometimes I forget just how good food is when made with simple ingredients. This salad is a perfect example. Mixed greens, toasted pecans, crisp & sweet apple slices, and gorgonzola cheese tossed with a tangy vinaigrette. Simple. Easy. Delicious. My son and I especially loved this salad and my husband and daughter thought it was great but neither cared too much for the gorgonzola cheese.
How to Make Autumn Salad with Apples, Toasted Pecans, and Gorgonzola
Toast the pecans. Place the nuts in a dry skillet over low heat and toss every few minutes until lightly browned and toasted. Be careful not to burn them.
Place the mixed greens in a large bowl. Top with toasted pecans, apple matchsticks, and gorgonzola crumbles. Drizzle some of the vinaigrette on the salad, to taste. Toss to coat evenly then serve immediately. Enjoy.
