Winter means cold weather, at least everywhere but here in sunny Florida where it’s 82 and I’m wishing for a cold snap. Cold weather brings to mind warm, comforting foods but salads are still on the menu. Inspired by this Honey Apple Vinegar I found on a Fresh Market expedition, this one was perfect for a cool evening. Add a little grilled chicken and it’s a meal. No honey apple vinegar? White balsamic would be just as lovely.
- Baby Spinach
- Walnuts (or your favorite nuts)
- Granny Smith Apple, 1
- Shallot, 1 or 2
- Olive Oil, 1/3 cup or so
- Honey Apple Vinegar, 1/4 cup or so
- Honey, 3 or 4 tablespoons
- Black Pepper
- Goat Cheese
Sprinkle with a little black pepper and drizzle in a little honey. Stir it all together for just a minute over low heat, long enough to coat the apples and just take the chill off. You don’t want them too soft.
