Honey Crisp Apple Salad with Walnuts and Sweet Spiced Basil + Cider Vinaigrette


Honey Crisp Apple Salad with Walnuts and Sweet Spiced Basil + Cider Vinaigrette


 

2 head, butter crunch lettuce

4 cups wild arugula

1/2 cup toasted walnuts

2 Honey Crisp apples, sliced into thin matchsticks

1/4 cup basil, thinly sliced

 

¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 ½ tablespoons honey

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon black pepper

¼ teaspoon plus a pinch salt

Pinch cumin

Pinch curry powder

½ cup plus 2 tablespoons canola oil

 

Add all ingredients into the bowl of a food processor, and process until everything is well combined and smooth; with the processor running, slowly drizzle in the oil and continue to process until the vinaigrette is well emulsified and blended.

 

In a large bowl, add the lettuce, arugula, basil, walnuts and matchstick-sliced apples, and drizzle lightly with some of the Spiced Cider Vinaigrette.

 

****This makes about 1 cup, so you may have additional dressing left over which you can store in the fridge***
