Winter Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette Dressing

This sweet and tangy apple cider vinaigrette dressing made with fresh shallots is drizzled over a winter salad of crisp iceberg lettuce, sweet apples and candied walnuts, and tangy soft crumbled chevre.




  1. Add your chopped lettuce to a serving bowl. Top with candied walnuts, chopped red apple, and crumbled goat cheese.
  2. In a small bowl, add your thinly sliced shallot rounds, top with apple cider vinegar, and mix. Let sit and macerate for at least 10 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, in a separate bowl combine dijon mustard, honey, olive oil, and lemon. Whisk together until combined.
  4. Add shallot mixture into the dressing and mix until combined. Add a pinch of salt and a few cranks of freshly ground black pepper.
  5. Drizzle over the salad, using as much or as little as you like. Enjoy!
