Harvest Apple Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

baby mixed greens
crumbled feta cheese
slices of fresh pear (Bartlett or Bosc or your favorite)
apple chips
dried cranberries
poppy seed dressing*

Place the mixed greens in a salad bowl, top with feta cheese, fresh pear slices, dried cranberries, and apple chips. Serve salad dressing on the side. (You can toss the mixed greens with the dressing and then add the toppings but I have found if you let everyone dress their own salad you can save any leftover salad for later.)

*Poppy Seed Dressing
1/3 cup honey
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vinegar (I like white balsamic or apple cider vinegar.)
1 tablespoon dijon mustard (yellow mustard can be substituted)
1/3 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon poppy seeds

Combine all ingredients in a pint sized jar. Seal the jar and shake vigorously until everything is combined. Store in the refrigerator. Shaking when ready to use.
