An easy salad to make using packaged (or homemade) glazed walnuts, fresh apples and salad greens, and Danish blue cheese. We especially love this salad drizzled with a nice creamy raspberry vinaigrette (such as Ghirard's brand dressing), but a Balsamic Fig dressing is also very nice. Enjoy! Recipe taken from Diamond Nut Toppings package (but I added a few things such as the craisins and coconut).

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 cups baby greens, washed and dried
