  1. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, apples, Cheddar cheese and walnuts. Toss lightly to blend.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, maple syrup and olive oil. Pour over the salad, and stir to coat. I like to use a bowl with a lid so I can shake the ingredients. Serve immediately.

Delicious - perfect for a quick and easy lunch! I used a combination of baby spinach leaves and romaine lettuce. I also used a combination of Granny Smith and Red Delicious apples for added color and flavor. I toasted my walnuts before tossing them into the salad and used "Maple-Balsamic Vinaigrette" from this site. Overall, very good.


I am not a salad person, but I LOVE this salad! You might try serving the cheese, nuts, and apples on the side, because they all fall to the bottom of the serving bowl.

This was very good a nice change of pace. Since I'm low carb, I made raspberry vinaigrette to use instead of the maple syrup. The apples and spinach worked very well together. The walnuts added a nice crunch also. I think I'll use a different cheese than cheddar next time. I like goat cheese or Feta in salads.
