This Fall Harvest Salad recipe is proof that a delicious salad doesn’t have to be complicated or have a lot of ingredients. When I was brainstorming this recipe I wanted something that was simple and I wanted it to remind me of fall. This recipe did it.

This salad features fresh spinach greens, Bartlett pears (wrapped with bacon, no less), crisp cucumber, crunchy walnuts, pumpkin seeds and my favorite—dried Bing cherries. This fresh salad reminds me of a crisp, fall morning. It’s absolutely refreshing and delicious.

If you need a dish to bring to a friendsgiving or to your in-laws, then consider this! It will definitely impress …not that you’re trying to or anything (;
