Preparation Instructions

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.
