Our cranberry goat cheese log adds just the right amount of creamy sweetness to top off all the fresh and bright flavors in this simple fall salad. Sliced sweet apples and toasted pecans add just the right amount of texture and crunch, and the homemade vinaigrette brings a touch of acidity to tie it all together.
