Apple Vinaigrette

Apple Vinaigrette
From The Comfort of Apples: Modern Recipes for an Old-Fashioned Favorite

Prep time: 5 minutes

Makes ¾ cup


1 tsp garlic, chopped (Ruth’s note: much as I love garlic, next time I think I’ll leave it out)
½ tsp shallot, chopped (1 small shallot and if you’re eliminating the garlic, you might want to go with a little more)
1 cup apple, peeled, cored and chopped
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2/3 cup olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste

1. Mix everything in a blender (Ruth’s note: or a deep bowl or jar and use an immersion blender). Pulse until smooth. Taste for seasoning.

2. Place the salad greens in a large bowl, pour the dressing over and toss.
I made a variation of a Waldorf Salad with Arugula.
