Chopped Salad w/ Apples, Walnuts, Arugula and Bacon
I love a chopped salad. It's a big mess of whatever you want, cut into small pieces.
Here I made a version of Ina's Cape Cod Salad, using feta, walnuts, apples & bacon.
Use any lettuce you like, Romaine is also a good choice.
and a fried egg on top is always a great choice.
Chopped Salad w/ Apples, Walnuts, Arugula & Bacon:
big bunch of arugula, chopped
1 apple (I like Gala), skin on, cut into small dice
handful of toasted walnuts
4 slices of good quality bacon, fried crisp and cut into dice
handful of feta, gorgonzola or blue cheese
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp grainy mustard
1 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp olive oil
sea salt & pepper
You know what to do.
Whisk the dressing with a fork and chop away.
Mix everything together with the dressing and plate, or eat from the bowl (like I do!).
