Crunchy Greens, Honey Crisp Apples, and Smoked Bacon Salad, topped with a Creamy Maple Balsamic Dressing


With apples on my mind, I couldn’t help but think this taste of fall flavored salad would hit the spot. I love this dressing, it makes this salad just say Autumn! To make it a main course, add grilled chicken and serve with warm brown bread and butter, and a glass of chilled apple cider! ~Amy
