  • 4-5 cups spinach salad mix
  • 2 red apples thinly sliced on a mandolin
  • 2 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ red onion thinly sliced on a mandolin
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup sugared pecans chopped
  • 4 Tablespoon goat cheese chopped or crumbled

Salad Dressing

  • 2 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1.5 Tablespoon white sugar
  • 1.5 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 4 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large salad bowl, add spinach salad mix, red apples, red onion, dried cranberries, sugared pecans, and goat cheese. Toss to combine. Set aside.
  • In a small mason jar, add apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, white sugar, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Cover and shake vigorously, for about 20-30 seconds, until salad dressing has thickened.
  • When ready to serve, lightly pour dressing over salad greens and toss. Serve and enjoy.


  • It’s best to wait until right before serving to pour the dressing on.
  • Feel free to double or triple the dressing and keep it on the side. This stuff is pretty good on all kinds of greens.
