This apple pecan salad was the perfect combination of flavors with the crisp apple, sweet dried cranberries, salty feta and crunchy pecans all tossed together with leafy greens and topped with your favorite salad dressing.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, having a baby totally changes your life. In way more good ways than bad, for sure, but that doesn’t mean it’s not different. And one main difference for us is that our date nights are often parties of 3 now instead of 2. Colby man gets to tag along with mom and dad when we want to eat dinner out, and our movies end up being rented from red box and watched at home after Colby has gone to sleep. That means that most likely this weekend, Valentines day will most likely be spent at home too. But I don’t mind too much, because now I have a date with my handsome husband and with my adorable little boyfriend.
So this year for our Valentine’s Day dinner at home I’m going to make sure we have dinner that’s delicious and a little bit fancy, and our first course or a side is going to be this amazing apple pecan salad. And it’ll be the perfect addition to our semi fancy date night dinner at home.
This apple pecan salad was the perfect combination of flavors with the crisp apple, sweet dried cranberries, salty feta and crunchy pecans all tossed together with leafy greens and topped with your favorite salad dressing. I tried it with Italian dressing and ranch dressing and both were delicious.
This salad would be a perfect side dish to any of your favorite meals! Or if you add chicken it would be a great meal on its own too!
