More About This Recipe

  • This is the final post in this week's Apple Series, following Homemade Applesauce, Homemade Apple Pie, and Loaded Apple Muffins.

    When my daughter saw me slicing apples for this apple salad the other day, she pulled up a stool and asked for a slice. And then another. And could she have that cube of cheese too? Smart girl. Apples and cheddars are a fabulous pairing.

    Apples are reaching their prime season right now ... juicy, crisp and perfect. Biting into one sprays you with a mist of sweet apple juice -- which is even better if they are chilled. It's blissful.

    Beyond just eating apples, I love thin slices of raw apples in salads. They add a lovely crunchy and sweetness to any dish.

    The salad I was making the other night was Apple, Prosciutto and Walnut Salad. Whisper thin slices of prosciutto are sliced into strips and served with apple slices, bits of walnut and cubes of cheddar (the sharper the better!) on a bed of Bibb lettuce with vinaigrette.

    It's a wonderful mix of flavors and textures: sweet and salty, creamy and crunchy. And the vinaigrette adds a nice element to the salad too.

    This is the kind of salad you might serve at a luncheon or whip up for a light dinner (just add some dinner rolls). You could also eat it with mini sandwiches for something a little more filling.

Apple Salad with Walnuts

Today, I made a simple apple salad with walnuts that my family loved. For some reason, apples and walnuts go together like peanut butter and jelly. There's some bizarre flavor combination that sparks my taste buds and sends them reeling. And, today's homerun sealed the deal for me. Although fairly mild, walnuts possess a complexity that includes some tangy and sharp notes some say they are bitter. But when toasted walnuts are combined with the sweetness of apples, a romance forms.

Even the simplest ingredients, when put together, harmonize a distinct flavor and texture. With walnuts and some straightforward ingredients, apple and walnut salad, dressed in a tangy apple walnut dressing, scream success. Yes, I'm raving about a simple salad with a to die for dressing, and it's all about food combinations. So, let's make an apple walnut salad recipe your family will all rave about.

First, it began with walnuts toasted in the salad and used as the creamy component to the dressing. Oh, and did I mention the apples are a part of both too?

Apple, Prosciutto and Walnut Salad and Other Tasty Ideas For CSAs

Apple, Prosciutto and Walnut Salad might just be my official salad of fall 2010. It&rsquos divine.

A few weeks ago, one of my cohorts at Tablespoon mentioned making an Apple Salad for this month&rsquos content. Apple salad, I thought &hellip should I grate it and toss with a little lemon and then add to a coleslaw? Should I do something with beets and apples? But then it came to me: Apples, Prosciutto, Walnuts, Cheddar &hellip these are to-die-for together.

The crispy, sweet apples are a lovely contrast to the salty prosciutto, creamy cheese and meaty walnuts. Heaven on a plate, if you will.

And so it was. The kids and I feasted on this salad for dinner one evening, and adored every last bite. Try it sometime. You won&rsquot be disappointed.

Looking for other ideas for you CSA produce? Try these:

Apples &ndash The kids and I feasted on apples this afternoon. They were so juicy. Or, try your hand at making Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce. It&rsquos divine.

Tomatoes &ndash Heirloom tomatoes are perfect for slicing up and serving with a sprinkle of sea salt and a touch of good olive oil. Or, try Heirloom Tomato and Nectarine Salad, which is a lovely salad for a warm fall evening.

Beet Greens &ndash Beet greens can be used like any other greens. Tonight, we will be having them sauteed in a little olive oil with garlic and red pepper flakes. Delish. Also, save the baby beets. They can be cleaned and chopped and then added to salads raw.


Spinach and Prosciutto Salad With Apple-Onion Vinaigrette

This isn't Mom's bacon-dressed spinach salad. The bacon has been replaced with a leaner, lighter and sweeter cured-pork product: prosciutto from Parma. Toasted walnuts add crunch, and the combination picks up zing from a vinegary mix of sauteed onions and apples softened by a little maple syrup. I prefer just a hint of maple, but if you'd like a stronger maple taste, increase the amount of maple syrup you use.

Make Ahead: The dressing can be made up to a day in advance. Bring it to room temperature before using. You might need to mix in a tablespoon of oil or water, your choice, to loosen it up.

Servings: 4
Ingredients
Directions

Heat the oil in a large nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion reduce the heat to medium and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until the onion just starts to soften, then stir in the apple. Cook, stirring every minute or so, for 5 to 7 minutes, until the apple softens. It's okay if the onion browns a bit. Remove from the heat and transfer to a small bowl.

Mix in the maple syrup, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Let cool for 15 minutes, then stir in the vinegar. Taste, and adjust the seasoning as needed.

Lay the spinach leaves out on a large shallow bowl or platter or individual shallow bowls. Tear the prosciutto into pieces about 2 inches long and 1 inch wide distribute over and among the spinach leaves. Sprinkle the walnuts over the salad. Spoon the vinaigrette over and toss to coat evenly.

NOTE: Toast the nuts in a small, dry skillet over medium-low heat for a few minutes until fragrant and lightly browned, shaking the pan as needed to avoid scorching. Let cool before using.
