This is a wonderful salad. Fuji, Ginger Gold, and Pink Lady apples are great because they do not brown as bad. You can use any apple though and since it is the season for apples, you should have no problem. You could easily add a protein to this, like chickpeas and also any nuts would be great, like Walnuts which I have used before. Enjoy~ Serves 4-6 2 tsp olive oil 1 large shallot, finely chopped 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar 2 tbs honey 12 cups mesclun salad mix 1 apple, thinly sliced 3 oz goat cheese 1 cup pomegranate seeds 1.
