Chopped autumn salad with bacon, apple, cranberries, feta, and pumpkin seeds. Tossed in a simple, yet flavorful honey apple cider dressing. It’s crunchy, salty sweet, and loaded with flavor!

  • 45 strips cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1 Honeycrisp apple, cored and medium chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta
  • 4 Tbsp. toasted pumpkin seeds


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the salad ingredients. Pour dressing over the salad and toss to combine. Taste for salt and pepper before serving.
