Apple Salad Cups with Maple Dressing


Serves 4

You’ll Need

  • 4 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 apples
  • 2 cups mixed greens or leaf lettuce
  • ½ cup cubed aged cheddar
  • ½ cup pecans
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper

Prep and Cook

  • Slice the tops of the apples and scoop out the insides using an ice cream scoop, melon baller or knife. Leave at least a ½” border around the apple. Fill a large bowl with ice water and add the lemon juice. Leave the apples in the water until you are ready to fill with the salad.
  • In a small bowl, combine the mixed greens, cheddar cheese and pecans. In a small jar, place the vinegar, maple syrup, olive oil and mustard. Cover and shake well. Pour some of the dressing over the greens and toss to combine; season with salt and pepper.
  • Remove the apples from the water and pat dry. Fill the cups with salad and serve.
