Fall flavors are my favorite! I love apples, pears, and grapes so I thought- why not make a delicious salad with them?! I roasted the grapes for optimal flavor and rolled goat cheese in herbed panko. I top it off with a shallot apple cider vinaigrette and you have the best salad ever.


4 cups mixed baby greens

1 bunch grapes

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 apple, sliced thin

1/2 pear, sliced thin

1/3 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

1/3 cup dried cranberries

1 tablespoon butter

1/2 cup panko 

1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon zest

3 oz goat cheese

Apple Cider Vinaigrette:

1 small shallot, diced small 

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon honey

1/3 cup Grapeseed oil






First thing you want to do is preheat your oven to 400 degrees F

On a small sheet tray take a small bunch of grapes and cut it into smaller bunches. Drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. Put into the oven to bake for 5 minutes

In a small skillet melt the butter. Add in the panko, chopped rosemary, chopped thyme, and lemon zest. Cook, stirring often, until a slight golden brown. Once cooked set aside to let it cool

On a large serving plate add the mixed greens. Add the thinly sliced pears and apples. Sprinkle the top with the pepitas and dried cranberries and put on the grapes

Cut a slice of goat cheese and add it to the panko. Coat both sides with the panko and add it to the salad. Add as much or as little as you’d like

Now it’s time for the vinaigrette! In a small bowl add the sliced shallot, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey, salt, and pepper. Whisk to combine and while whisking add in the grapeseed oil

Spoon the vinaigrette over the top of the salad and serve! Yum!
