  • Prep

  • Ready In

  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.

Very nice combination of flavors. I contributed this salad to Christmas Eve dinner, and the adults seemed to really like it. I will make this again. However, despite the almost "caramel apple...
