Moosewood's Apple-Celery En Bleu

Inspiration:
The first fresh apples of the season!
and
Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home

Ingredients:
  • 1 sweet, crunchy apple (Empire, Mutsu, or I used Zesta)
  • 2-3 celery stalks
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue or Roquefort Cheese
  • 2 servings of salad greens
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar or fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
Instructions:

  1. Core the apple and cut it into 1/2-inch pieces. Thinly slice the celery. Combine the apples, celery, and crumbled cheese in a serving bowl. Add the greens to the bowl.
  2. In a cup, use a fork to whisk together the vinegar or lemon juice, oil, and honey.
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad, toss well, and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.

Tim's Note: Don't pair with shiraz wine. The flavors don't complement each other. :)
