When I first tried out this salad, it was like heaven, all of the flavors go together so well and the dressing is AMAZING. Today I decided I wanted to make a version of it, minus the spinach (although it is amazing with the spinach, i just don't have any!).


So what I did was cut up some apple and onion, throw some honey roasted almonds on top and cover it when the dressing.


Simple and delicious. It would be a perfect side dish. Or whole meal, if you want something light. All I know is it’s totally worth eating.


So here’s what you’ll need:

1 apple, I used fuji
1 red onion
A handful of almonds, honey roasted works really well

Slice the apple and the onion, throw them in a bowl or on a plate, throw some almonds on top.

for the dressing:

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 heaping! teaspoon honey (i like it sweet.)
a pinch of salt
some fresh ground pepper
some grated parmesan

Combine it all in a bowl and whisk! Pour it on top of the apples and enjoy.
