When I started to make this salad, which I’ve loved for years, I realized something. I am always concocting up new recipes and sometimes forget to make my tried and true staple recipes that I’ve been making for years to share with you all here on the Blog. This is a seasonal salad for me that I only tend to make In the Fall season.....AND I LOVE IT!! And you truly could eat this all year round. 

The homemade dressing is the star of the show here and of course I like to use my favorite apple: The Honey Crisp!

What you'll need

Apple Spinach Salad
1 pound Baby Spinach or Spring Mix
3 sweet apples halved and sliced ( I like Honeycrisp or Gala)
1/4 cup Feta cheese, crumbled
Handful Dried cranberries or crasins (I had a cranberry and nut blend)
1/4 cup Candied pecans and/or almonds 
3/4 cup olive oil
3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 Tablespoons white vinegar
3 Tablespoons sesame seeds
1/4 cup white sugar
3/8 teaspoon paprika
S&P to taste if desired 

To make the dressing, pour all into a salad shaker or jar and shake well, or whisk all ingredients together in a bowl. Assemble salad ingredients and top with dressing, toss and serve! 




  1. Looks delicious! I love a sweet and savory salad like this - yum!!!Hope you have a terrific Tuesday beautiful friend!!

  3. Yum!! I like trying new salads :) Have you ever tried goat cheese with it? I've had a sad with apples before and they had goat cheese on it and it was good!!

  8. This is so up my alley - I actually am wanting to make a salad like this to take to my brothers for Thanksgiving :)

  9. This looks so good! If I'm going to enjoy a salad it's going to be spinach for me. Yesss, honey crisp are so good! I can't wait to enjoy some feta again :) Sierra Beautifully Candid

  10. This looks so delicious and yes it seems seasonal, but would be delicious anytime of year. I like the ratio of apple to spinach...looks like a lot of apple. YUM! Thanks for sharing an oldie but goodie. XOXO

  11. Such a good salad! I love it! xo

  12. Yummy!!! I need to make this salad and bring it with me to lunch! Thanks for sharing!

  13. This salad is right up my alley! I love making my own dressing. I am the same, I need to get back to my old staples!

  14. Sounds good! I'll be trying this soon.

  15. I love a good salad with apples on it! And I eat an apple every single day so this would be a great way to change it up instead of eating it plain.

  16. I make almost the exact same thing regularly! I use raisins instead make a different dressing (honey, mustard, vinegar, and oil). A lot of times I will make chicken in the crock pot or buy a rotisserie one and make it a giant dinner salad. So good!!

  17. This is totally right up my alley and I'm going to make it asap! :)

  18. Oh yes that dressing does sound like the star! Honey Crisps are my favorite too but I've been liking Envy a lot lately as well. This is the perfect fall salad. Yes please!!

  19. Yummy. I love the idea of this salad. I make one very similar but want to try yours out.

  20. I just pinned this to try later...Question. Do you toss with the dressing then server or pour the dressing over right before you eat it?

  21. This sounds so incredibly delicious! I'm a huge fan of salads with apples and cheese, but the dressing sounds especially delicious!

  22. Oh yum!! This looks so delicious, especially that dressing! I love making my own dressing when I get the chance. It's just so much tastier!

  23. YUM! I love salads and I can’t wait to try this one.

  24. This salad looks so flavorful! Great recipe.

  25. Andrea I've never tried this combination before but I know one thing for sure the addition of feta makes everything better! Pinning to try this!!
