Apple Salad with Autumn Cider Dressing

Apple Salad

Autumn Cider Dressing, (below)

1 tart firm apple, cored and cut into 1/2 inches chunks
(I like Granny Smith, but use whatever apple you prefer)

3 cups (more or less) Romaine lettuce, washed, trimmed, torn into bite-sized pieces

1 cup arugula, washed & torn into bite-sized pieces
(you can use watercress or fresh spinach instead)

Crumbled or sliced/cubed cheese – this could be blue cheese, feta cheese, or goat cheese

3 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans

In a bowl, toss the apple chunks with 2 tablespoons of Autumn Cider Dressing. Place the lettuce and arugula in a large salad bowl and toss with the remaining dressing. Divide the greens among 6 salad plates, top with the apples and the crumbled or cubed cheese, then sprinkle with walnuts or pecans.
