I make and eat a ton of salads, and I love coming up with interesting salad combinations. This one, complete with shaved parsnip, carrot, and apple, is one of my new favorites.

The cheese is optional, of course, or you can feel free to substitute goat cheese for the feta. You could use pecans instead of the walnuts, and you could add 1/2 cup dried cranberries. If you do add the cranberries, this goes beyond the perfect fall salad and becomes the perfect salad for Thanksgiving…
