Festive Fall Salad

**I took this salad to our family Thanksgiving this year and therefore quadrupled the recipe.  As written it's only enough for 2-4 people--at least the way our family eats salad!!  In our family, salad IS the main dish!!!

This tasty and statisfying salad is great for potlucks and fall gatherings.


•1 pound mixed salad greens

•½ cup red onion (thinly sliced)

•½ cup walnuts or pecans (coarsely chopped--or left in halfs)

•½ cup dried cranberries

•2 fresh pears (peeled and sliced)

Cranberry Dressing:

•¼ cup fresh or dried cranberries

•2 Tbsp cup raw unfiltered honey

•3 Tbsp raw unfiltered apple cider

•1/2 tsp mustard powder
•¼ tsp minced garlic

•Pinch of Celtic or Himalayan salt


1.Place salad ingredients in a bowl, and toss well.

2.Place all dressing ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.

3.Pour over salad and serve immediately.
