    LifeIsGood's Note:

    I love this salad. The dressing is really tasty and easy. Cheese crisps are fun to make, just be careful not to burn them (or your fingers)! You could add other flavors to the cheese crisps, ex. try it with cracked black pepper and chopped thyme or other herbs - add them as the cheese melts. Enjoy!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Over medium-high heat, heat a nonstick skillet. Add the shredded Swiss in small, 1 1/2 inch piles to the hot skillet. When the cheese fries to a light golden color at the edges, about 2 minutes, and can be moved with a thin spatula, flip the cheese rounds and cook another 15 to 30 seconds, then remove from skillet and transfer to plate or rack to cool. Repeat to form 12 to 16 crisps, 3 or 4 per salad.
    2. 2
      Put the spinach in a bowl. Core and thinly slice the apples then squeeze a wedge of lemon over them to keep them from browning. Toss the apples with the spinach.
    3. 3
      For the dressing, combine the thyme, Dijon and vinegar with a whisk. Stream in the olive oil while continuing to whisk. Pour over the salad and toss to coat greens and apple evenly. (You may not need to add all of the dressing. Add enough to lightly coat your salad.).
    4. 4
      Transfer the salads to plates and top with the Swiss crisps.

      Very nice salad! I loved the cheese crisps and made a bunch extra to snack on. :) DH wasn't wild about the dressing initially so I added a splash of maple syrup and a touch more mustard. We both very much enjoyed it then. Thanks for posting!

      I liked this salad, especially the spinach, apple, vinaigrette combination. I could have taken or left the cheese crisps. I tried to be very careful, but the cheese crisps can easily become too browned and then taste a little off (even though they didn't look burned). Two of my crisps came out fine and tasted good. Despite using a non-stick pan, I am finding it a little hard to clean. I halved the salad to suit just me. Made for ZWT7

      Reviewed for ZWT7 - very nice salad. Easy to put together and the Swiss Cheese crisps were a nice touch. My husband wasn't keen on it ...so I guess this must be more of a girly salad. Photo to be posted
