This Fall Harvest Salad is more than a dish; it’s a celebration of the season’s abundance, brought together on your plate, delivering the perfect bite every time. What’s so great about this salad is that you can cut the ingredients into any shape you would like, using as much or as little of each ingredient as well. The Zesty Apple Cider Citrus Vinaigrette adds a burst of lively flavors. Crafted with the essence of apple cider vinegar, a hint of Dijon mustard, and a touch of honey, the vinaigrette ties together the sweetness of autumn in every drop and pairs deliciously with each ingredient.
