The naturally sweet notes of crisp in season apples, toasted pecans and dried PNW cherries sing together in this elegant (and easy!) salad; leave the heavy lifting to our Mighty Micros. The vinaigrette unifies and compliments all the flavors, so if you have the bandwidth and ingredients to pull it off, it will make a major impression and only takes about 3 minute. If you don’t have champagne vinegar, any white wine vinegar will work just fine (or other clear vinegar for that matter). If you have a mandoline slicer, this is a great time to break it out, it will give you awesome consistent slices in a quarter of the time.
Honey Champagne Vinaigrette:
1 tablespoon champagne vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoon olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
¼ teaspoon salt
1 () package of
2 pink lady apples (or other crisp variety), thinly sliced
1 cup pecans, toasted and roughly chopped
½ medium red onion, thinly sliced
½ cup dried tart cherries, torn or rough chopped if larger in size
