Simple Fall Salad with Maple Salad Dressing

We had a wondeful fall salad on Thanksgiving. Here it is! (Thanks Anne for the ideas!)

Simple Fall Salad with Maple Dressing

1 large bowl of mixed greens (we used romaine and lettuces fresh from our garden)
Crumbled feta, gorgonzola, or bleu cheese
6 oz. walnut or pecan halves, toasted if desired
Dried cranberries
Thinly sliced red onion

1/4 cup maple syrup
1-1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper

Put greens in a large bowl. Top with cheese, cranberries, onion, and nuts. Warm maple syrup in a small saucepan. Pour vinegar into a small bowl. Whisk oil into the vinegar in a slow stream. Whisk maple syrup into dressing in a slow stream. Pour dressing over the salad and toss. Season with salt and pepper.
