Cranberry Apple Pecan Salad with Creamy Poppyseed Dressing


There is nothing that I love more then a mouthwatering salad.  One that tastes so amazing that you crave it and can’t wait to make it again.  This salad was just that.  One of the best ones that I have had and it is screaming fall!


The line up of this salad is all of my favorite things about fall.  Dried Cranberries, pecans, apples, and feta cheese.   Toss with some fresh spinach and you have one amazing salad.  I used my favorite creamy poppyseed dressing from this Strawberry Avocado Salad.  It is seriously the best dressing I have ever had.  It glazes the salad perfectly.  I am afraid of using anything else because everyone always raves how amazing it is.   It complemented the salad perfectly and all of the flavors came together so amazing!   I just couldn’t get enough of this salad.  Make it for yourself and see how incredible it is!  This is truly a 5 star salad!
