There is nothing better than sitting down to a fully loaded salad! And this Autumn Apple Salad is loaded up with tons of flavors and textures. It is sure to become a new favorite. Trust me.

Autumn Apple Salad:

This salad is loaded up with all the best fall flavors.

  • Two kinds of apples. Granny Smith and Fuji. To give a sweet and tart flavor.
  • Crumbled feta cheese.
  • Crispy bacon
  • Sweet dried cranberries.
  • And crunchy pecans.

Plus we’re going to drizzle this apple salad with some flavorful Maple Dijon Vinaigrette.

The dressing is made of ingredients you most likely have in your pantry: extra virgin olive oil, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, dijon and salt and pepper in there. This has become one of my all time favorite salad dressings and I make this to drizzle on most of my salads now.

The best way to make the dressing is to use a small jar. This way you can close the lid, give a little shake, and mix it up completely.
