Rocket, Apple, and Walnut Salad with Balsamic Dressing
June 21, 2015
This salad is anything but boring. Packed with bitter greens, crunchy nuts, sweet apple and a tangy balsamic dressing, it is not only good for you, but also an explosion of textures and flavours! The addition of blue cheese is optional but makes for an even tastier salad. Feel free to mix things up according to your taste - swap the apple for pear, walnuts for almonds or blue cheese for feta!
- Prep: 15 mins
- Yields: 4-6 Servings
Mix all the ingredients of the dressing together and have a taste. Adjust according to preference. TIP: I like to make my dressings by placing all the ingredients in a small jar and shaking it vigorously to emulsify and mix the ingredients well.
If you would like to prepare the salad ahead of time, toss the apple slices with some lemon juice immediately after slicing to prevent them turning brown and store each of the salad components separately in airtight containers until needed. Just toss everything together before serving.
