Autumn Salad with Red Wine Vinaigrette

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Cindy Barr

This recipe is similar to a salad Hunt traditionally serves at her annual gathering, using locally grown Asian pears and Macoun apples. Asian pears and Granny Smith apples (a good substitute for Macouns) are available at supermarkets.

Yield: 12 servings (serving size: about 1 cup salad and 1 teaspoon cheese)
