Roasted Apple Salad with Spicy Maple-Cider Vinaigrette
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
This is a new favorite salad! I used half the amount of salad/apple ingredients and made the full amount of dressing for 2 main dish salads. Used Gala apples, Gravenstein Apple Balsamic (from Saratoga Olive Oil Co.) instead of cider vinegar, and 1/2 the amount of Siracha. I also added sliced roasted chicken (roasted with salt, pepper, and olive oil). I've made this twice just this week!
Truly a winner - the only thing I had to modify was the dressing - much less sriracha needed and I added a little honey.
I made this delicious salad tonight and it is a hands down winner. I followed the recipe except I pared it down for the two of us which meant I used two apples and half a bag of spring mix. I made all of the dressing. I did omit the goat cheese as it is not a favorite of ours. This may look like a lot of work but it wasn't. I roasted the apples earlier so they could cool and the dressing goes together in a snap. Plating it is quick and it looks elegant. It would be a perfect salad for guests. We loved it and will be having it again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home.
