Chopped Apple Salad Recipe
A seasonal sweet salad spiked with blue cheese
This is a sophisticated take on an American classic, the Waldorf salad. Tart crisp apples, piquant blue cheese and rich, crunchy walnuts combine to create a salad with layers of flavor and texture. Slightly sweet, deliciously tangy pomegranate molasses is the key ingredient in the vinaigrette, binding all of the elements in place of the traditional mayonnaise-based dressing. Tender baby spinach and crisp endive amp up the fresh factor of this hearty salad.
- Whisk together the pomegranate molasses, vinegar, mustard, and honey in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
- Slowly whisk in the olive oil until emulsified. The dressing can be made 2 days in advance and stored in a container with a tight-fitting lid in the refrigerator.
- Combine the apples, spinach, endive, walnuts, and blue cheese in a large bowl.
- Add the vinaigrette and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
