Apple Pecan Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette.

Mixed greens. Dried cranberries. Gorgonzola cheese. Candied Pecans. Granny Smith Apple slices. measurements. I just used about a plateful of mixed greens & a handful of everything else.

The raspberry vinaigrette was a perfect pairing!
Here's that Recipe:
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup raspberry vinegar
1/8 cup sugar
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon fresh black  pepper

• Add all ingredients in a small bowl
• Whisk until blended
• Drizzle on salad
• Toss

This is one of my favorite green salads...deliciously sweet & better than the one I made last year.

Yummy! I've never had Gorgonzola cheese but it looks and sounds good. I love spicing up my salads and making them less traditional with lots of flavor.

This recipe has the perfect fix that I look for in my foods!

P.S. Great photos I can't wait to try this out
