Ontario Apple, Walnut & Feta Salad {Recipe Redux}

Happy International Nut day! Go nuts today (and everyday) by including these healthy plant-based fats, protein-packed wonders in your diet. One of my favourite ways to consume my ¼ cup of nuts is by sprinkling them on salads!

 

My Fall Harvest salad deliciously combines the sweetness of apples and dried fruit with saltiness of feta cheese. I use a simple olive oil and balsamic dressing and topping of walnuts to add crunch.

 

Prep time: 15 minutes

Serves: 4

 

Ingredients:

4 cups salad greens (Endive, green leaf, romaine), chopped

1 red apple, unpeeled and chopped

1/3 cup feta cheese, cubed

3 Tbsp craisins or raisins

¼ cup roasted, unsalted walnuts

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

 

Instructions:

  1. Chop and clean lettuce and place into large bowl.
  2. Add chopped apple, feta, craisins on top of salad greens.
  3. Toast walnuts in the microwave for 30-60 seconds to boost flavour. Top salad with roasted walnuts.
  4. Drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar over salad greens and toss to combine. Add more dressing as desired to lightly coat your ingredients.

 

Happy Nut Day foodies!
