Harvest Salad is the perfect fall salad recipe with fresh greens, candied pecans, crisp apples, dried cranberries, and tangy blue cheese all tossed together in a deliciously easy maple vinaigrette dressing.
Place all dressing ingredients in a lidded jar. Shake vigorously until dressing is creamy and emulsified. Refrigerate until ready for use.
Put spring mix in a large serving bowl and place remaining ingredients on top. Pour desired amount of dressing over salad and toss to combine.

Make Ahead Directions:Assemble the salad without the apples and dressing, then cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap. Prepare the maple dressing and store in refrigerator.When ready to serve, add sliced apples, give the vinaigrette a quick shake, and toss all together with the salad.Alternately, serve the vinaigrette on the side and allow guests to dress their own salad. This will prevent the salad from becoming wilted while sitting.Additional Toppings for Fall Harvest Salad
