1/1 Photo of Mixed Greens' Salad With Apples and Maple-Walnut Oil Dressing
From the August 2005 Cooking Light issue. The walnuts are my addition. Now that apple season is about upon us, it's time to sample different varieties. This salad recipe is a good start.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 6 cups mixed greens, rinsed
