This almost didn’t make the post as my son kept trying to steal it off the plate 🙂
Last year a friend came over with this salad.
It was wonderfully simple and I had to re-create it! Then one day I
was completely out of an ingredient, so I made a substitution. My family loved
it even more! And so I continue to make it this way. As always, I am itching to
revamp it again, but here is take 1 🙂
Apple-Cranberry Walnut Salad
3– 4 large apples
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
juice of 1 lemon
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 Tb honey
1. Remove core of the apples and then slice them up.
2. Place apple, cranberries, walnuts in a bowl. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon over the mixture and toss.
3. Add cinnamon and toss again. Finally add the honey and toss 1 last time 🙂
See, Easy Peasy! You want to make sure to add the lemon, cinnamon, and honey
in the order. That allows the lemon juice to adhere to the apples to prevent browning.
If you add the honey before the cinnamon, then the cinnamon tends to get clumpy.
By any chance you have leftovers of this wonderful dish (which unless I hoard it, never happens)
it is wonderful served in oatmeal the next morning for breakfast! I have also been
tinkering with the idea of serving it warm over pancakes (yum!)
