Spinach, Apple, Walnut Salad

It was pasta night of the week. I usually make pasta one night a week and I like to pair it with a simple salad and garlic bread and call it a meal. For the salad, I combined the candied walnuts, baby spinach, shaved apple and goat cheese. I used a store bought raspberry vinaigrette which gave a nice sweet finish to the salad.


Ingredients (serves 2)
Baby Spinach - 4 cups
Candied Walnuts - 3 tablespoons
Goat Cheese - 2 tablespoons
Apple - 1
Raspberry Vinaigrette - for dressing

Instructions

  1. Using a mandolin, shave the apple into very thin slices. Alternatively, use a knife to chop the apple into thin slices.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the baby spinach, candied walnuts, goat cheese and shaved apple.
  3. Drizzle raspberry vinaigrette and toss well.
  4. Serve chilled!
You can find the recipe for candied walnuts - here.
