Apple-Blue Cheese Salad w/Toasted Pecans

Apple - Blue Cheese Salad w/Toasted Pecans

This is simply a great tasting salad that is good in both the summer and winter. I had a bought a big tub of blue cheese at Costco for another recipe and came up with this combination. The salad dressing really adds to the flavor of the salad but if you want to use a bottled dressing I think a sweet poppyseed dressing would be good.

Salad Ingredients
6 C. Romaine Lettuce, torn in bite-size pieces
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and diced
1/2 C. crumbled blue cheese
1/2 C. toasted pecans, coarsely chopped

1. To toast pecans, place pecan halves on a plate and microwave on high for a minute, stir, and continue to microwave in 15 second increments until toasted. Cool and then chop
2. Place the lettuce in a bowl, top with the apples, blue cheese, and pecans. Drizzle with the cooled dressing to taste.

Dressing
3/4 C. canola oil
1/2 C. sugar
1/4 C. vinegar
2 T. soy sauce

1. Combine the dressing ingredients in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Simmer for one minute. Remove from heat and cool.
Serves 4
