Apple Walnut Cranberry Fall Salad

  • Author: Johnniemay McDonald
  • Total Time: 30 minutes


Crispy sweet apples, nutty walnuts, and more all on a bed of fresh greens make this the best fall salad recipe of the year!


Units Scale
  • 2 red apples
  • 3/4 cup unsalted walnuts
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese (optional)
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 50z Greens (I used baby spinach spring mix)
  • 3 cups kale, chopped


  1. In a small saucepan, cook the quinoa and set it aside to cool. Cook the quinoa according to the instructions on the package. Also, use the package to cook the correct portion.
  2. Chop the apples into medium-sized triangles, (about 1 in.).
  3. Add all the ingredients to a large bowl. Make sure your greens are thoroughly cleaned. Then toss the salad ingredients together, gently equally distributing the ingredients.
  4. Serve with your favorite salad dressing. (See above for the salad dressing recipe I used).
