Apple and Feta Salad

I’m a big fan of vegetables, but not of salad. Once in a while though, I come across a recipe that is just so irresistible that I forget about my food apprehensions. The following recipe is an example of that. This salad recipe is incredibly refreshing and sweet, with just a bit of bite from the feta. It’s great for a simple dinner party, and even when you simply want something healthy and crunchy to snack on.

Apple and Feta Salad

Ingredients

  • 6 cups torn mixed salad greens
  • 2 medium apples, chopped
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup green grapes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese

Steps

In a small container (with a leak proof cover), combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, lemon juice and minced garlic. Cover the container and shake everything together. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the greens, apples, raisins and grapes. Pour the prepared dressing over it and toss together. Top with the crumbled cheese.

See, it’s so quick and simple. Make sure to have everything chilled before preparing to make this salad extra refreshing.
