Apples and cheddar are a yummy combination, and our maple-Dijon dressing marries them speedily in this modern summer toss.


Ingredients

  • 3 cups mesclun greens or chopped romaine hearts
  • 1 apple
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1/2 cup coarsely grated old cheddar
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or almonds
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white-wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp honey-Dijon mustard

Instructions

  • For salad, place greens in a large bowl. If using lettuce, tear into bite-size pieces. Slice unpeeled apple into thin wedges. Thinly slice celery, then add both to lettuce. Grate cheese and chop nuts and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk oil with vinegar, maple syrup and honey Dijon. Just before serving, drizzle over salad and toss until coated. Scatter cheese and nuts overtop.
