Autumn Salad with Poppyseed Dressing
Enjoy the seasonal flavors of Apples, Pears, Pecans, and Pomegranates with this quick, easy and delicious Autumn Salad with a dash of Poppyseed Dressing. Yum Yum!!!
Fall is almost around the corner and we can barely wait to enjoy the seasonal produce like apples, pears, pumpkins, the different varieties of squash and ofcourse corn. The one thing I see myself making often during fall is this Autumn Salad with Poppyseed Dressing. I admit it is my family’s favorite Autumn Salad. After a spell of summer fruits, we love the crisp and sweet apples and pears. They bring about just the right amount crispiness a salad should have. Add in some greens like buttercrunch lettuce and you are all set for the crisp and crunchy element of the salad. Throw in some pomegranate seeds, nothing like the pomegranate seeds bursting with sweet and sour juices in your mouth. Pecans add the scrumptious nutty taste and for a rich aroma and tangy flavor toss in some feta cheese. You could even add some cranberries if you like. The best way to dress up this Autumn Salad is with a tongue-tingling sweet and tangy Poppyseed Dressing that is easily available at Target. OMG!!! Can you imagine the medley of flavors?
Not only do we love the flavors of this salad but we love how easy and quick this is to prepare. Especially for a party. It’s quick and easy and sure to wows your guests. There have been times where we were requested to make this salad for our block parties or potlucks. You cannot go wrong with this salad for sure. If you are making it for a party, you can even make it ahead of time. Make sure the apples and pears don’t go brown. We often soak them in lemon water to prevent browning. Always works and keeps the salad fresh and crisp maintaining it’s appeal. The next time you are hosting a Fall Party, don’t forget to wow your guests with this salad.
