This salad is simply delicious to make with all things “Canadian” eh!
- torn spinach and iceberg lettuce (combined) - 8 cups
- celery stalk (more if desired) - 1
- slices bacon (more if desired) - 4
- apples (Red Delicious, Empire, McIntosh or Honeycrisp) - 1-2
- sharp cheddar cheese - 1 cup
- roasted walnuts - ½ cup
- Apple Cider & Garlic Vinaigrette - 8 tbsp
Roast walnuts in 350°F oven about 5 min. or until beginning to brown.
Cool and roughly chop.
Fry bacon until crisp, dry on paper towel and crumble into pieces.
Slice celery stalk in half lengthwise. Cut the 2 pieces in half and slice on diagonal.
Thinly slice apples, skin on.
Place salad greens on plates or in bowl. Dress with apples, celery and cheese.
Drizzle with Apple Cider & Garlic Vinaigrette, tossing salad.
Garnish with toasted walnuts, (walnuts may be seasoned with a sprinkling of cayenne powder while roasting).
Assembly Option: This salad can be assembled in metal rings (like a hollowed out tuna tin) for individual servings. Lightly toss your greens first with 1/2 dressing, for stick. Layer your ingredients in a pleasing stack, pressing into the ring to compress the ingredients. At this point, you can wrap and refrigerate until ready to use. Simply invert onto a plate when ready to use and gently push, lifting up the ring to hold the shape. Drizzle with remaining dressing.
