Today, I have a recipe for an apple salad with walnuts, blue cheese, and craisins with an apple cider vinaigrette dressing. This is a fairly common recipe with many varieties. I just picked my favorite elements from other recipes to make my own custom favorite. This makes around 4 servings.
1 or 2 Granny Smith Apples
Blue Cheese Crumbles
Walnuts (chopped or pieces)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Apple Cider Vinegar
Cruet or Mason jar (to mix dressing)
**Not pictured water, salt, and pepper)
To make the Apple Cider Vinaigrette you'll need...I personally eyeball this now, so I'm estimating measurements!
1/4c. Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tablespoon of Dijon Mustard
1/4c. of Sugar Free Syrup (If you're using real maple syrup I would do this to taste is you may need less)
3 tablespoons of Water
1/4 c. of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste.
To make the salad.....
Thinly sliced Granny Smith Apple (you can use 1 or 2)
1/2c. of Blue Cheese Crumbles
1/2c. of Craisins
1/2c. of Walnut pieces
Mix in bowl and add dressing.
