Another Black Swan

This hearty and flavorful salad is easy to prepare and great served over warm laffa bread for a complete meal. While my favorite version contains a tasty gourmet chicken and apple sausage, any smoked sausage such as kielbasa will do. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Place 2 teaspoons olive oil in a skillet and heat over medium heat. Stir in the sausage; cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Place the apple slices in a bowl, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Set aside.
  3. To make the dressing, whisk together 1/3 cup olive oil, Dijon mustard, 1/3 cup lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a bowl until creamy.
  4. Place the field greens and arugula leaves in a salad bowl; toss together. Mix in the red onion, pecans, blue cheese, and apple slices. Pour the lemon dressing over the salad mixture, and toss to coat evenly. Add the sausage, and toss again.

This salad made a wonderful light Sunday night fall supper served with a nice crusty bread. The only change I made was to add just a touch of honey to the dressing. Very good!

I love this salad. I make it for dinner almost every week scaled down for two people. The only thing I do differently is saute the onion for a couple of minutes with the sausage. Thanks!

thanks for this most interesting recipe. sorry i did change a couple of things but it was still good. i didn't have pecans so used walnuts; some of my friends don't like blue cheese (don't know what's wrong with them!!) so i used parmesan instead. worked a treat. but i AM going to make it with blue next time - at least a small one for those who are blue lovers!
