This is a very nice salad. I used toasted almonds in place of walnuts. I loved the tartness of the salad dressing with the sweetness of the apples. Simple and lovely. Thank you evelyn!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Have previously washed your lettuces and spun dry, or put in a large, clean pillow case and swung over your head for a few seconds (this really works! The centrifugal force gets the water off the leaves and the pillow case absorbs it- don't let anyone see you doing this- they'll think you're insane).
  2. Whisk together the dressing ingredients in a small bowl.
  3. Combine the lettuces in a large bowl and toss well.
  4. Add the apples and nuts and drizzle with the dressing.
  5. Toss again.
  6. Using a vegetable peeler or sharp paring knife, shave curls off if a wedge of parmesan over the top (be generous!).
  7. Serve at once as the lettuce will start to wilt with time.
