Autumn Main Dish Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by 3KillerBs

Main dish salads aren't just for summer. This tasty salad presents the flavors of fall greens, fruits, and nuts for your family's enjoyment. Serve it with bread, biscuits, or cornbread. Or load it into wraps for a portable lunch. For the best apples check your local orchard for regional varieties in season. Those who don't eat pork can substitute smoked turkey. "Cooking" time is time to sit and blend the flavors.

We really, really liked this! I wasn't sure about it, given the two opposing reviews! :) I made as directed, including the suggested Balsamic Dressing recipe; only we did leave out the nuts. The flavor that came through the most was the salty ham, but the dressing, apple, and creamy cheese were nice accompaniments. We eat a lot of low carb meals, and this will definitely be made again!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toss all salad ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Prepare dressing if necessary. Dress salad to taste. I'd use ~1/4 cup but some may like it stronger.
  3. Let sit for 10 minutes to blend flavors and toss again.
