I love salads, but not just any salad. It has to be some yummy mesclun mix at the very least, and when it looks like this gorgeous apple walnut feta salad I’m a happy girl! I grew up on an organic farm so I’m a bit of a snob (or so I’ve been told) when it comes to produce. This salad screams amazing!
At most of our family functions there’s at least two salads. One of them usually looks very similar to this. Salads are something that we all enjoy, and we love trying new things with them. They’re also easy to serve for 8-10 people!
I haven’t had a salad at home for over a year. My SO will not eat a salad. He doesn’t like lettuce. He certainly wants nothing to do with a dressed salad. I think I need to start keeping some salad mix around for myself. I shouldn’t give up salads just because he won’t eat them. I’m silly sometimes!
6 cups salad (I used a combination of arugula and baby spinach, any spring green mix will do)
1 red apple
1 green apple
1 cup walnuts, roughly chopped (such as Diamond of California)
⅓ cup crumbled feta cheese
⅓ cup dried cranberries
1 cup apple juice
4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (or white vinegar in a pinch)
2 tablespoons honey
scant ½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup oil
Core and chop apples (thin slices or 1 inch chunks). Toss lettuce,
apples, walnuts, feta, and cranberries together in a large bowl.
Whisk together all dressing ingredients. Toss with salad immediately before serving. Enjoy!
