This salad is crunchy thanks to the pears, apples, and celery. The dried fruit and nuts make it festive


For Apple Cider Dressing:

  1. Blend 1 1/2 tablespoons of maple butter (at room temperature) with 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, and then stir in 1/4 cup apple cider. If it doesn't blend well, microwave on high briefly, and then stir.

For salad:

  1. To toast nuts, add to small nonstick frying pan and cook, stirring often, over medium heat until lightly brown and fragrant. Set aside to cool.
  2. Add diced pears and apples, sliced celery, and dried cranberries to serving bowl. Add apple cider dressing; toss gently. Sprinkle toasted nuts over the top and serve.
