Pumpkin, Pecan and Goat Cheese Salad

I've been making this delicious salad all weekend and I'm absolutely in love!
Using up leftovers and a delicious maple mustard dressing, I transformed our Costco container of mixed organic greens into another keeper!
Check it out!

  1. That looks like a great salad. I would go heavy on the goat cheese because I like it so much, but I love your idea.
