    Salad

    • 5 -6 cups of hearts romaine leaves (the light green, crisp inner portion of a head of Romaine lettuce)
    • 2 -3 flavorful apples, peeled and cored, then sliced as described below (such as Braeburn, Fuji, or Honeycrisp)
    • scant 1 cup of crumbled blue cheese
    • 1 cup coarsely chopped toasted hazelnuts

    Balsamic Vinaigrette With Sweet Honey Mustard

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Vinaigrette: In a container, whisk together the vinegars, sugar, sweet mustard, salt and vanilla. Whisk in the oil. Makes a generous 1 cup of vinaigrette.
    2. 2
      Salad: Arrange the romaine on individual salad plates.
    3. 3
      To prepare the peeled and cored apples, cut each half into 1/4-inch thick slices, then cut each slice into thirds.
    4. 4
      Place the apples in a small bowl and toss with enough of the vinaigrette to coat the pieces. You can prepare the apple mixture up to an hour ahead. Important: If you coat the apples with the dressing any longer than that, they will absorb too much of the vinaigrette, which overwhelms the apple flavor.
    5. 5
      Divide the apple mixture among the salads. Top each serving with a portion of the cheese and then a portion of the hazelnuts.
    6. 6
      Drizzle an extra bit of the vinaigrette over the greens and around the edges of the salad. Serve.
    7. 7
      Alternatively: Instead of hearts of Romaine lettuce, consider a mixture of baby spinach, hearts of Romaine and/or other mixed young greens. You could also substitute feta or white cheddar, aged gouda, etc. for the blue cheese.
    8. 8
      Another serving option would be to assemble the entire salad on a large platter instead of individual salad plates.

      Yummy. I don't eat lots of vinaigrette dressings but I really enjoyed this one. The salad was good with lots of crunch. I used a Pink Lady apple for the first time and really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing, CG. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

      This was a really lovely salad that is simple, yet elegant. I used Gala apples, which were very flavorful, and white wine vinegar. I chose to serve this in one large bowl, which was then tossed and served. The blue cheese really pops here. I will definitely be making this again! Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

      A lovely salad! I loved the dressing! I couldn't find hazelnuts, so used toasted pecans. I also used fuji apples and extra virgin olive oil instead of grapeseed oil. Thanks so much for a yummy salad.
