Fall Pom/Apple Salad with Goat cheese balls and Apple Cider Dressing


This is super Yummy! I love Goat Cheese and nuts, and fruit together. I based  this idea loosely from Paradise Bakery's Fuji apple salad.

1 Head Romaine lettuce cut up
1 bag of spring mix lettuce
1/4 of red onion chopped
2 tomatoes chopped
1/2c. pomegranate seeds
1c. pecans divided toasted and chopped use 1/2c. for salad and chop other half finer and roll goat cheese balls in it. (I glazed the pecans another time when I made this. Delish!)
2 pouches of Mrs. Mays freeze dried apple slices
5 oz. goat cheese.
roll goat cheese into bite size balls and roll in chopped pecans. I put a couple of pomegranate seeds in middle of balls too for an added burst of flavor. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Apple Cider Dressing
1/2c. apple cider
2t. parsley flakes
3T. cider vinegar
1T. Dijon mustard
1/4t. salt
1/8t. pepper
1/4c. olive oil
1 clove garlic minced
2T. agave nectar
1t. basil
5 slices dried apple crushed to powder
3T. sour cream
2 drops of apple flavoring (optional)
mix well.
