Delicious fall salad! Really liked the sharp but subtle under tones of cheese and mustard against the sweet apple and maple syrup. Made using a bag of mixed baby greens. The maple flavored walnuts are a very nice addition to this tasty salad. Thanks for the post.

I loved this salad and really enjoyed the dressing. It was quick and easy to make with terrific results, even the picky dh enjoyed this lovely treat. The sweet, salty, tangy flavor of the dressing permeated the salad instilling an excellent flavor. The sharp cheddar, crisp apples and candied pecans were the topping on the cake, taking it to another level. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe Lori Mama, that I will enjoy again and again. Made for Pac Spring Safari.
