School Night Supper {Apple Cider Salad + Dressing}

I made this Apple Cider Salad inspired by the one in Magnolia Table to go with our dinner one night and it was a huge hit!  All of the flavors go together so well.  The following recipe is not verbatim, but rather my short cut interpretation.

Since it was just the four of us, I assembled individual plates at dinner time, rather than tossing everything together, so we were able to continue making salads over the course of a few days.  (You know, the lettuce wasn’t all soggy and cheese wasn’t mushy.)  For lunches I added tomatoes and honey turkey and that was REALLY good too.

The dressing is excellent and I continued to enjoy that on other salads until it was gone!

Short Cut Apple Cider Salad

Inspired by: Magnolia Table

2 bags butter lettuce salad
8 radish, thinly sliced
block grated white cheddar cheese
praline pecans (Trader Joes, or you can make your own buttered pecans)
Apple Cider Vinaigrette

Arrange lettuce on individual plates.  Top with radish, cheese and pecans.  Drizzle with vinaigrette.  Serve immediately.

Apple Cider Vinaigrette

1 c extra virgin olive oil
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
juice of 1 lemon
1 T stone-ground mustard
1/2 tsp salt
3 T water

In a 16-oz or larger mason jar, combine all ingredients.  Screw on the lid and shake vigorously until well blended.  Can be stored in the fridge up to one week.

If you’ve started using the cookbook, let us know your favorites so far!!  I think I’ve shared all of mine to date.

  1. Hi Amanda, last week I made the King Ranch Chicken. The family liked it ok but it was not a favorite that I would repeat. I did take the leftovers to the community pool to be shared with the lifeguards and they loved it. I also made a lemon raspberry bundt cake that is on Draper James (Reese Witherspoon’s store) blog and it got RAVE reviews:)

    1. Good to know! I was looking at that one but it had a lot of ingredients. :-) I can’t wait to look up the bundt cake!

  2. Yum! We’re always looking for another way to “do” salad around here – thanks for sharing! xo
