Apple Pecan Feta Spinach Salad with Maple Cider Vinaigrette

We had a big Father’s Day feast last night because Bob and I are going to be gone on actual Father’s Day.  We had ribs, steak, broccoli and this delicious salad plus cake for dessert which I’ll post tomorrow.  This salad though is one of the best salads I’ve ever made, it was so flavorful!  It comes from “Cooking Classy”.

  1. Mmm! That dressing looks delicious! I think I’ll use Dijon mustard as the mustard. But, love the addition of apple cider vinegar.

  2. I can’t wait to make it for the family and for me of course because I love salads. Thank you again for the delicious dinner we had at your lovely home and for the great company. Alice
