Ingredients
 
1 cup cranapple juice
1/2 cup cherry flavored brandy
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 medium apples (use a crisp variety, such as Braeburn)
1-1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1-1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions
 
Bring juice, brandy and vanilla to a boil over high heat in medium saucepan. Peel and core apples. Cut apples in fourths, then slice each fourth into 1/4-inch slices. Add apples to saucepan; reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes. Remove from heat; cool for 1 hour (for optimum color).

Whisk balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil and pumpkin pie spice in a small bowl.

Divide spinach leaves evenly between 4 to 6 salad plates. Sprinkle pecans and cheese over top. Drizzle with vinaigrette. Place an equal amount of apple slices on top of each salad. Serve.

Recipe Note: To toast pecans, place in a single layer in a baking pan. Bake at 375°F for 5 to 7 minutes. Cool.
