Salt And Pepper, to taste
Add greens, apple slices, pecan halves, dried cherries, and blue cheese chunks into a large salad bowl.

Pour a little salad dressing over the top of the salad and toss to combine. Taste salad and add more salad dressing to taste.
Note: I made this for the get-together at Mom and Dad's on June 3, 2012. I used cashews and and craisins instead of pecans and cherries because that's what I had. I really liked it but you do need to like blue cheese! This came from Pioneer Woman.
