Mary's Most Requested Salad Recipe

1 bag spring salad mix 
1 bag romaine 
3 oz bag of Oscar Mayer real bacon (or make your own - I often cheat)
1/2 cup dried cherries or cranberries
1 large granny smith apple, chopped
1/2 cup toasted pecans or almonds
5 oz  gorgonzola or blue cheese crumbled

* you can add more or less of each ingredient, do what you like!

Mary's Sweet Balsamic Dressing 
1/2 cup vegetable oil or canola
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons good balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon dry mustard (or a little squeeze of yellow or Grey Poupon mustard)
Few twists of fresh cracked pepper Or use 1/8 tsp of reg ground pepper

Whisk dressing ingredients until sugar and oil are blended.

If you plan on serving the entire salad, go ahead and add the dressing a little at a time, blending until you reach desired amount.  If not,  keep dressing separate and add individually.
