It tastes like fall! Try adding chicken for a main course salad.

Coarsely chop lettuce.  Squeeze the lemon juice over apples and pears and toss with greens.  Combine cider, vinegar, and sugar in a bowl and whisk in oil in a slow stream.  Pour dressing over salad and season salad with salt and pepper and toss salad to combine and coat evenly.  Serve salad with a garnish of sharp cheddar cheese.
