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.

Salad:

•1 pound mixed salad greens

•½ cup red onion (thinly sliced)

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

•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

Directions
