This is surprisingly simple to make, and I love the sweet-tasting dressing. I've use toasted cashews instead of pecans for equally great results.
1 bunch red leaf lettuce, chopped
1 bunch green leaf lettuce, chopped
2 red delicious apples- skin on
3/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
3/4 cup toasted, chopped pecans
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons shallots, minced
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1. Put dressing ingredients into shaker and refrigerate.
2. Place lettuce into 8 salad bowls. Cut apples into thin wedges and place on lettuce. Sprinkle pecans and blue cheese evenly over salad.
3. Drizzle chilled dressing over salads.
*If you prefer, you can toss the salad ingredients in a large bowl and then dish out individual salads. It "looks" prettier when you can fan out the apples on each salad.
