This salad is a little different. It is still a green salad but we added cheddar, cranberries, and walnuts. It was magnificent with a cranberry vinaigrette.
This recipe is sized to serve four. You may adjust quantities of ingredients to suit your preferences.
1 bag of prepared salad greens, 8 to 10 ounces
2 crisp eating apples, washed, cored, and sliced but not peeled (we used honey crisp)
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (glazing is optional)
1/2 cup grated cheddar
Dressing of your choice. A vinaigrette works nicely.
- Divide the greens into four bowls or onto four salad plates.
- Arrange the apple slices on top of the greens.
- Lay several slices of red pepper over the pears.
- Sprinkle with nuts and cheese. Drizzle with dressing and serve.
Note: It is easy to glaze the walnuts. See how to glaze nuts here.
