Leafy Salad with Crisp Apple Slices and Parmesan Cheese Curls

curly lettuce leaves to catch the dressing, crispy, crunchy apple slices, rich, salty parmesan cheese. This is a salad that ROCKS!

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.

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!

A wonderful combination of ingredients. I did cheat a bit, using a similar vinaigrette but otherwise made the salad as directed. Loved the parmesan curls.
