1/1 Photo of Mixed Greens & Piñata Apple Salad W/Cotija for 1
Grown in Washington state, "Piñata's heirloom parentage (it's a cross between Golden Delicious, and the heirlooms Cox's Orange Pippin, and the Duchess of Oldenburg varieties) gives the apple a unique flavor. Piñata apples are crisp and juicy with all the classic apple flavors that you love, and a unique tropical finish." I discovered this new variety (new to me) during the Holidays and couldn't wait to try them in a recipe! Here's one I found on stemlit.com. Growing season for the 'Piñata' apple is December through April here in the PNW. I don't remember where I found the cilantro-lime vinaigrette recipe...somewhere on the net. The vinaigrette recipe will yield more than is necessary for the salad and probably enough for three or four servings.
