Apple, Cheese, Walnut Salad

I love that I have been given the chance to read through our new cookbook and try some of the recipes - so yummy!  With honeycrisp apples already available in the Country Store and pick-your-own honeycrisp apples opening this weekend, I was determined to find a recipe that utilizes my new favorite apple.  So good - I hope you enjoy this salad, too!

Apple, Cheese, Walnut Salad

   3 TBSP olive oil
   2 TBSP balsamic vinegar
   2 tsp Dijon-style mustard
   1 clove garlic, crushed
   Fresh ground black pepper, to taste

   8 cups torn mixed salad greens
   2 medium Honeycrisp apples, halved, cored and sliced 1/8-inch thick
   1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
   1/4 cup walnuts, toasted, coarsely chopped

To prepare vinaigrette:  mix oil, vinegar, mustard, and garlic in small bowl and wire whisk until well blended.  Season with pepper.

To prepare salad:  toss together greens and apple slices in large bowl.  Drizzle with vinaigrette; toss lightly.  Arrange salad on large serving platter; sprinkle with cheese and nuts.
