Salad Ingredients:

  • 3 apples (Gala, Fuji or Gravenstein), core removed and cut into 1/4-inch dice

Gravenstein Balsamic Vinaigrette

Directions: Add the apples, spinach, romaine, walnuts and cheese together in a large bowl.

In a medium bowl, add the balsamic, honey and Dijon. While whisking, drizzle in the olive oil and whisk until emulsified. Season to taste with allspice or nutmeg, and salt and pepper, to taste.
