Apple Blue Cheese Salad



3/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons sugar
1 clove garlic, pressed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper


8 cups baby lettuce blend (Riviera or Spring Mix, etc.)
4 diced Granny Smith apples, cored but unpeeled
4 ounces blue cheese or feta, crumbled
1 cup pecans, toasted
1/2 cup dried cranberries (Craisins), optional


  1. Prepare vinaigrette by blending all ingredients thoroughly. Place in glass jar and shake until sugar dissolves. Set aside.
  2. Just before serving, layer in large platter: lettuce, apples, blue cheese, toasted pecans and cranberries.
  3. Shake vinaigrette to blend ingredients, then drizzle desired amount over salad. Use remainder for another salad.

Note: When cut, the apple flesh discolors quickly, so dip or coat them in lemon juice mixed with a little water and refrigerate in a sealed container.
