Harvest Apple Salad

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
toasted almonds
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!
