The changing of the season from Summer to Fall is always bitter-sweet. We long for those warm summer days of barbecuing but look forward to Autumn for our crunchy red apples to our sweet butternut squash.

Our Recipe of the Month eases you into Fall with the taste of our Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar and a full flavored aged cheese.

Mixed Greens with Fruit and Nuts

-1 bag of mixed greens or any other type of lettuce, torn into pieces;
-12 to 15 grape tomatoes;
-1 sliced cucumber;
-1 Jonathan (or your favorite) apple peeled and cut into slices;
-1/4 lb. of aged Pecorino Romano cheese sliced thin and cut into bite size pieces;
-1 handful of chopped walnuts;
-sea salt and pepper to taste.

For the Dressing:

-1/4 of Carter & Cavero Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar;
-1 tbsp. Dijon mustard;
-1 tbsp. Carter & Cavero Garlic Olive Oil;
1/4 cup or less of Carter & Cavero Organic Arbequina Extra-Virgin Olive Oil.

Preparing the salad:
