  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp shallots minced

Recipe Notes

If you are not serving this salad right away, toss the thinly sliced apples in a little lemon juice to keep them from browning, before you add to the rest of the salad ingredients.

I highly recommend toasting the almonds, it really add so much more flavor to the dish. It only takes a few minutes over the stove top on med heat!

Make it a meal and add bacon and chicken!
