Whenever I made the Scalloped Hassleback Potatoes,
I served this Harvest Apple Salad along with it.
It made me feel a little bit better about all the
butter and cream and cheese in the main course.
Along with pumpkins, apples are a fantastic
in-season fruit to take advantage of this fall.
This salad is a breeze to throw together and can be
easily customized to include your favorite ingredients.
The apples really make the salad though!
Here's what I used:
baby spinach greens
crumbled feta cheese
sliced Jonagold apples
I topped the salad with this sweet vinaigrette. I didn't have any sesame seeds on hand so I left them out and it was still very tasty. I believe next time I may reduce the amount of olive oil I mix in though.
Whisk these ingredients together:
¼ cup finely minced sweet onion
3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp. white wine or champagne vinegar
2 tbsp. sesame seeds
Pinch of paprika
2 tbsp. sugar
Then, slowly whisk 1/2 cup olive oil in until it's all well combined.
This makes a great side salad, but with some grilled chicken this could make a quick and healthy dinner option!
