Roasted Apple & Cheddar Salad

Roasted apples and Cheddar cheese turn an ordinary mixed green salad into something extra-special. You can use pears for this recipe as well.

Serves 6

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 , preferably Fuji, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme, or 1/4 teaspoon dried
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3 cups baby spinach, or torn spinach leaves
  • 3 cups torn Boston lettuce
  • 3 cups torn curly endive
  • 2/3 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

To prepare dressing: Whisk vinegar, apple juice, 1 tablespoon oil, honey, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl.

Step 3

To roast apples & prepare salad: Toss apples with 2 teaspoons oil and thyme in a medium bowl; spread evenly on a baking sheet. Roast, turning once or twice, until the apples are soft and golden, 25 to 30 minutes. Discard fresh thyme, if using. Let cool.

Step 4

While the apples are roasting, toast walnuts in a small baking pan until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Let cool.

Step 5

Just before serving, combine spinach, lettuce and endive in a large bowl; toss gently to mix. Divide the greens among 6 plates, drizzle with dressing and top with cheese, roasted apples and walnuts. Serve immediately.
