Apples, Mixed Greens & Arugula Salad with Bleu Cheese Dressing

I tried a bleu cheese dressing salad at one of the tapas restaurants called Loquita in Santa Barbara, California last fall, and that salad tasted so good that I decided to try and make something similar at home. I chose to make my salad with apples and a blend of mixed greens and arugula. I used apples because I knew these sweet apples would compliment the bleu cheese dressing very nicely.

Apples, Mixed Greens & Arugula Salad with Bleu Cheese Dressing:
makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups mixed greens plus 2 cups arugula
  • 2 sweet apples thinly sliced, any variety
  • Candied walnuts or pecans – 4 tbsp
  • 1 lemon
  • Ingredients for Bleu Cheese Dressing: 
    • 2 tbsp Bleu cheese
    • 1 tsp Honey
    • 2 tbsp White wine vinegar
    • 2-4 tbsp olive oil
    • Salt & pepper

Directions:

Make the dressing and set aside. Here is the recipe for my Bleu Cheese Dressing.

In a bowl squeeze juice of 1 lemon and fill the bowl with water. Cut apples into thin slices and place in lemon water to prevent them from turning brown.

When you are ready to serve the salad, toss all the greens, arugula, apples, walnuts, and bleu cheese dressing together.
