Warm Apple Salad

Makes 4 servings


4 to 5 cups loosely packed spinach or spring mix salad blend

1 lemon, zest and juiced (separated)

1 garlic clove, minced
3 tbsp olive oil
Sea salt to taste
¼ cup onion, chopped
4 apples, sliced
½ cup toasted pumpkin seeds

(optional: ½ cup crumbled goat cheese)


Wash the greens and place in a large bowl.


In a small bowl, whisk the garlic into the lemon juice. Stir in the sea salt and lemon zest. Whisk in the olive oil until it’s emulsified into a vinaigrette.

Pour half the dressing over the spinach and toss well.

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil and add in the onion, cooking until translucent and slightly caramelized, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add in the apples, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Toss in the pumpkin seeds to warm.

Add the onion-apple-pumpkin seed mixture to the spinach. Add the rest of the vinaigrette and more salt if desired. If using, sprinkle the crumbled goat cheese over the top.  Serve and enjoy!
