  • 6 about 6 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 large apple, cored and sliced very thin (try Envy, Gala, Fuji, or similar)

  • Honey-Apple Cider Vinaigrette
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Step 1

Salad - To a large bowl or platter, add all ingredients in the order listed; set aside.

2.Honey-Apple Cider Vinaigrette - In a small glass jar or container with a lid, add all ingredients, put the lid on and shake vigorously until combined; taste vinaigrette and tweak as necessary to taste. Drizzle over salad, toss to combine, and serve immediately. If you don't use all the vinaigrette, extra will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 1 week.
