Autumn Salad with Red Wine Vinaigrette
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp organic red wine vinegar
½ tsp sugar
½ tsp minced garlic
¼ tsp paprika
¼ tsp dry mustard
1/8 tsp salt
1 pinch dried basil
1 pinch cayenne
5 cups mixed salad greens
4 cups romaine lettuce
2 ½ cups Asian pears, cubed (about 1 large)
2 cups Granny Smith apples, cubed (about 1 large)
½ cup red onion, thinly sliced
¼ cup goat cheese, crumbled
Combine the first 9 ingredients in a bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Combine the salad greens, romaine lettuce, pear, apple, and red onion in a large bowl. Drizzle with the vinaigrette, and toss well to coat. Sprinkle with the crumbled goat cheese.
You can use any mixture of greens you’d like – arugula, spinach, and other lettuces all work well. Don’t dress the salad until ready to serve. You may want to adjust the amount of greens and fruit you use depending on the number of people you are serving. Any extra dressing will store well in a glass jar in the refrigerator.
