Autumn Apple Salad

I used to think that fruit had no place on a salad, but over the last year or so I have changed my mind.  It is amazing how apples compliment the other ingredients.  Now I find myself experimenting with different ingredient combinations in our salads all the time.  I used this as a side dish, but you could easily add left over chicken and make it a meal.
Ingredients
  • Fuji Apple
  • Bacon cooked and crumbled
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • Salt and Pepper to taste 
  • 1/2 teaspoon Minced Garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
  • Toasted Pecans
In a small bowl whisk together olive oil, dijon mustard, minced garlic, and balsamic vinegar.  In a large bowl place chopped lettuce.  Top with bacon, toasted pecans, and Fuji apple pieces.  Drizzle with dressing and enjoy!
