* said for 8-10 servings, I halved everything listed here and it was perfect for 2 people*
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup apple cider (or unsweetened apple juice)
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
black pepper to taste
3 medium honeycrisp apples (I used Gala, still delicious)
juice of 1/3 lemon
12oz salad greens (whatever you like)
1 cup pecans halves, toasted (put in oven on baking sheet for 5 minutes at 350F)
3/4 cup dried cranberries
4oz crumbled goat cheese
1. To prepare apple cider vinaigrette, measure oil, apple cider vinegar, apple cider, honey, lemon juice, salt and pepper in bowl. Mix well.
2. Place apple slices in large plastic baggie and squeeze the fresh lemon juice (from the lemon half) over them. Close bag and shake to coat. In large salad bowl, layer salad greens, apple slices, pecans, dried cranberries and goat cheese. Just before serving, dress with the vinaigrette or serve on the side.
SO GOOD. Maybe I’ll eat more salads if they all taste like this.
