Harvest Salad with Apple Cider Balsamic Vinaigrette

It's that time of year again! Salad time! So who says you have to eat the same old boring salads?
This one is full of some of my favorite things. For the dressing, I prefer to use a thick and syrup-y balsamic vinegar. If you use the cheap stuff, you'll have to reduce it in a saucepan until thick.

2 Cups of Field Greens lettuce mix
1/2 red pear, cut into small slices
1/4 cup of dried cherries
1/4 cup of chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon crumbled parmigiano-reggiano cheese
In a small bowl, whisk together:
2 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar (I prefer Claudio 25-year Balsamic)
1 small squirt of Dijon Mustard
1 Tablespoon of Apple Cider
