Apple and Spinach Leaf Salad

by Marissa on September 19, 2012

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year and living in New York City means that an apple orchard is never more than a car or train ride away.

In my opinion, you can never have enough apples when they’re in season because not only can you grab one as an easy on-the-g0 snack, you can also add them to your salads. Here’s one I made the other night that David went crazy for (yes, my mine loves greens!).

Apple and Spinach Leaf Salad

For the salad:
1 c. spinach
1 c. radiccio
1 sliced apple (Granny Smith recommended but use what you have!)
½ red onion, thinly sliced
½ c. alfalfa sprouts
¼ c. toasted pumpkin seeds

For the dressing:
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
sea salt and black pepper

Combine all salad ingredients in a bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients in a separate bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat.

That’s all? Yes, you’re done. Now go eat!
