Fall Salad

As the festive session started to approach this year, I wanted the recipes I create to fit into a theme. So, when the other morning while I was looking out the window, I saw the trees had begun to change colors. That’s when I knew I had to do a Fall theme. This salad is amazing for the Holiday meal, or anytime really throughout the year. It is a bit time consuming to make, but you don’t have to watch once it’s in the oven, so you can prepare other dishes in the meantime. Trust me it’s worth it. Enjoy
