Fall Harvest Salad with Bacon, Apples + Glazed Pecans

A few weeks ago we had a Progressive Dinner with some friends.
We hosted the Salad portion at our house.
I served 3 salads and wanted one of them to have flavors of Fall.
I decided to make a Fall Harvest Salad and I threw together a bunch of ingredients & hoped that it would taste good....and it did! It is one of my new favorite salads, so I thought I would share it here!
 Here is what you need:

-Romaine Lettuce
- Apples ( I use Honey Crisp)
- 8 slices of bacon ( I use Hormel Thick Cut)
Cook your bacon & chop it up 
I cook my bacon in the oven at 450 degrees for about 15-18 minutes
- Blue Cheese (optional, if you don't like blue cheese omit it or use another type of cheese)
- Dried Cranberries
- Glazed Pecans (Recipe below)

Glazed Pecans:
 Here is what you need:
 Glazed Pecans:
1/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups Pecans

Put ingredients in a microwave safe bowl:
Mix above, stir to coat.
Microwave for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge or in your pantry!
**I make these the day before I make this salad**
If you make them the day of, you can always keep them in the fridge so that they cool faster.
These pecans taste like candy!
They are perfect to put in salads, like this one!

Back to the salad....
Once your bacon is cooled & chopped up, it's time to put the salad together.
Layer the lettuce, then the apples, blue cheese, cranberries & glazed pecans.
I toss this salad with a balsamic vinaigrette!

This salad is so good & super easy to make!
I had everything prepped in the afternoon, so when the guests arrived at our house for the salad portion of the progressive dinner, I just tossed it with Balsamic Vinaigrette.

The other 2 salads I served at the Progressive Dinner were a Greek Salad & my Beet Salad:

 I just love a salad filled with lots of different flavors!

Hope you enjoy my Fall Harvest Blue Cheese, Bacon & Apple Salad as much as we do!

  1. Sounds wonderful! I have had your beet salad for lunch two times this past week... Yum! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Do the apples turn brown with the dressing on the salad? Look for a teacher luncheon item?
