Apple Salad

During restaurant week last week, John and I went out to Cafe Lurcat for dinner.  It was pretty delicious!  For our appetizer, we each ordered their apple salad, and it might have been my favorite part of the meal.  So, I decided to try and replicate it at home, and you know what?  It turned out pretty darn close!

For one large salad you will need:
  • 1 large Fuji apple (3-4 inches diameter)
  • 1-2 ounces Manchego cheese
  • 2 teaspoons chives, finely chopped
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Simply cut and core your apple, and then julienne the apple with the skin on.  Think of the shape of shoe string potatoes.

Then, cut your cheese to the same size.

Drizzle the olive oil (a very tiny amount!) and toss the cheese and apple together.  Top with chives and a light amount of salt and pepper if you'd like.

Ta da!  So easy, and so delicious!  This is perfect for summer because it's light and refreshing, and you don't have to turn on the stove top or oven :)
