Toasted Walnut & Sliced Apple Salad with Blue Cheese Crumbles

This salad goes well with just about anything. I used it to compliment my Macaroni & Cheese recipe. It is quick, easy, and undeniably tasty. It will add a mixture of color and delicious flavor to any main entree. Note: The sliced apples can be substituted for pears.


Toasted Walnut & Sliced Apple Salad with Blue Cheese Crumbles

1 bag of greens
1/2 of an apple
walnuts to taste
blue cheese crumbles to taste
preferred dressing

Break up walnuts into small pieces and spread evenly on a cookie sheet. Place in a warm oven for 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. They should give off a fantastic aroma. Put aside.

Take an apple and using one of those fancy apply slicers, cut the apple into bit size wedges with one slice. Set aside half of the wedges for a snack later on. Take the other half of the wedges and, using a knife, slice them into thin wedges lengthwise.

Put the greens, toasted walnuts, and apple slices into a salad bowl with blue cheese crumbles and dressing. Toss and enjoy!
