This Apple Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad Recipe is easy, delicious, and will make you wish it was summer all year long!
My girlfriend Stacy introduced me to this salad. Stacy who claims she's, "not much of a cook." Stacy who also brought us The Best Roast Broccoli Ever, and Garlic Herb Cream Cheese Dip. Hey, Stacy. I'm calling you out, girl. I think you're pretty darn fabulous at putting together some tasty chow.
Anyway, about the salad. Ohhhhhh, lordy. This Apple, Blue Cheese and Walnut Salad is what other salads want to be when they grow up. I'm pretty sure this salad went to college. Possibly even grad school. It's sweet, savory, tangy, crisp, crunchy, deliciously refreshing salad perfection. Summa Cum Salaude. That's what we should've called it.
I love the almost peppery flavor of the arugula mixed with the sweetness of fresh cut apples. Add in the tangy blue cheese and you have such a gorgeous combination of flavors in your mouth!
Top things off with crunchy nuts and a creamy dressing! You'll wonder where this salad has been all your life. If you want to make the salad a full meal, add some grilled chicken strips. Or just serve it alongside your favorite protein.
