Harvest Cobb Salad...pinned it and tried it...and devoured it!

Pinned, tried, and devoured is right...... Brent and I ate most of of it and then fought over leftovers the next day. He won.

But don't worry, I'll be making this again soon.

I don't often cut up apples and pears to put on our salads, or use oven roasted pecans much. It's usually walnuts and most of the time berries I throw on salads. In fact, once fall hits I'm not thinking of salads that often. I'm on to more comfort foods.

But this sounded too good not try. I did switch a few things to our own preferences.(I found the recipe here.) I love the original Cobb Salad, but have never tried a version with harvest ingredients before. Using a poppy seed dressing was a excellent idea,too.

 The combo is delicious!

Another Pinterest success!
