Ingredients

Maple Vinegairette

  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons real maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt or to taste

Salad

  • 1 heart of Romaine lettuce
  • 1 sweet apple i.e. Honey crisp or Gala
  • 1 cup red seedless grapes sliced in half
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup toasted pecans chopped
  • 3 ounces of smoked Gouda cheese
  • 1/4 pound of maple smoked turkey breast from the deli

Instructions

  • To make the dressing, combine all ingredients into a small jar. Cover and shake well. Add extra salt and pepper if necessary, to taste.
  • If you will be eating this salad immediately, place all of the salad ingredients into a large mixing bowl. If you will be prepping the ingredients for several salads for the week, keep each ingredient in a separate small bowl or plastic bag.
  • Wash and dry the lettuce in a salad spinner or on paper towels. Stack the leaves together and slice or chop them into bite-size pieces, no larger than 1 1/2 inches.
  • Quarter the apple and cut it into 3/4-inch cubes. If storing it for later, toss the cubes with fresh lemon juice to prevent browning.
  • Cut the Gouda into 1/2-inch cubes
  • Cut the entire 1/4 pound of turkey into 1-inch square pieces
  • Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and toss together.
  • Drizzle with salad dressing as desired, and toss to combine.
