Autumn Apple Salad

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

If you are still in need of a easy side for Thanksgiving, then this recipe is for you.  This simple autumn apple salad has the perfect flavors for Thanksgiving including cranberries, apples, and pecans.  The dressing is also simple – just combine a poppy seed dressing and a balsamic dressing.  I used the Private Selection brand from my local Smith’s (Kroger) grocery store for both dressings.

One other quick tip when making this salad.  You can get all of the ingredients ready ahead of time.  You can even dice the apples and put them in some 7-Up a few hours ahead of time and the apple pieces won’t go brown.  When ready to serve the autumn apple salad just strain the apples and toss along with all the other ingredients.  You could even use pears in place of the apples. It would be equally delicious. I also used the tip I recently shared to cook the bacon in the oven.  I used foil instead of parchment and it worked like a charm.
