I realize that Fall doesn't officially begin until the 23of of the month but the cooler weather has me thinking about it already. I love this time of year. Anxious for a Fall to begin and not willing to wait for the official start to the season - I put my Fall decorations up in the house last weekend. The mantle is full of pumpkins and the smell of apple cider is filling the house. Let Fall begin!
I love the colors, the smells and the flavors of Fall. Warm cinnamon, crisp apple and creamy pumpkin recipes fill my table this time of year.
Today's Fall recipe - Apple Raspberry Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette. It's super easy and really delicious. Crisp apples drizzled with a hint of cinnamon - a perfect Fall flavor combination.
Apple Raspberry Salad with Vinaigrette
2 red apples Vinaigrette
2 Tablespoons lemon juice 3 Tablespoons oil
8 ounces lettuce 2 Tablespoons raspberry vinegar
¼ cup walnuts 1 Tablespoon chopped onion
fresh raspberries 1 Tablespoon honey
½ teaspoon cinnamon
The directions are simple, combine the salad ingredients (listed on the left) and then combine the vinaigrette ingredients in a separate bowl. Drizzle vinaigrette over salad just before serving.
I served this salad with pork ribs and sweet potatoes. I was super exited that I had enough salad left over to eat for lunch the next day - and I'm usually not a huge fan of leftover salad. This salad not only looks pretty - it tastes just as good as it looks. The flavors of Fall - yum.
