Apple Poppyseed Salad

We've been making quite a few salads these last few weeks...perhaps to savor the last few weeks of warm weather!  Also...all of those warm comfort foods are starting to creep onto the Pinterest boards {hello Pumpkin Spiced Lattes!}, so I need to resist the urge as long as possible!  One nice thing about this time of year is that apples are at their peak, so it's a great excuse to make this salad!

I love the flavors and texture in this salad.  The apples and dressing are sweet and yet the peppers and gorgonzola add a tang.  Here are the ingredients:  

Green Bell Peppers
Mixed Greens
Gorgonzola Cheese
Almond Slivers
Poppyseed Dressing

You can also add red onion, but I've pretty much sworn them off since the pregnancy!  ;)

Fall technically doesn't begin until the 22nd, so I'll be hanging on as long as I can to these last days of summer!  How about you?
