Spring is almost here and it’s time to refresh your diet with colorful vegetables and leafy greens. Here is a great salad to eat as a meal by itself or serve on the side of a main entrée. It is easy to make ahead for any party or potluck. Granny Smith apples are marinated in this dijon-vinaigrette salad dressing and bleu cheese and walnuts are tossed over a bed of mixed greens. This tangy vinaigrette goes beautifully with tart apples and pungent bleu cheese. The dressing can be prepared up to three days ahead and refrigerated in a jar. The contrast of the sharp-tasting, creamy, salty cheese with the crispy, sweet fruit, and the earthy-buttery nuts is divine. The garnish of crunchy walnuts adds texture and flavor to this simple, yet elegant salad. Feel free to experiment with other types of cheeses by asking some of these local cheese stores listed below.
