Mesclun Salad with Honeycrisp Apple Vinaigrette

Sandwiches made with leftover ham from last night and a big salad. That was dinner for us tonight.  By the way, mesclun is just a fancy word for the baby lettuce mix that is in every grocery store these days.


Mesclun Salad with Honeycrisp Apple Vinaigrette


1 bag mesclun salad mix
1 honeycrisp apple, chopped
1/3 cup goat cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup chopped pecans

2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons apple cider
1/4 cup olive oil
2-3 tablespoons honey (to taste)
salt and pepper

Combine the vinaigrette ingredients in a jar and shake.  Pour over salad greens and toss.  Top with apples, goat cheese, and pecans.
