APPLE WALNUT SALAD WITH BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE



Like this apple walnut salad. It has the perfect combination of sweet and savory. Sweet crisp apples tossed with nutty walnuts and salty feta in a creamy balsamic vinaigrette. I used red leaf lettuce. It’s so pretty and delicious. The colors remind me of fall. You can use any of your favorite apples for this salad. I went with gala apples for its mild and sweet flavor. Last but not least, feta adds the perfect amount of saltiness and you can substitute goat cheese or even blue cheese.
