The tartness of the lemon juice offsets the sweetness of the apples in this simple salad. The Dijon adds depth, while the earthiness of the spinach ties it all together.
- 1 small to medium head romaine lettuce
- 6 C baby spinach
- 1 bunch (about 8 T) fresh mint (or 2 T dried mint, if you can’t get fresh)
- 2 large apples
- 1/4 C sour cream
- 1 1/2 t Dijon mustard
- 1/2 C lemon juice
- dash of salt
- 2 T fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
Cut the Romaine into bite-sized pieces. Wash, quarter, and cut the apples into half-inch chunks. Toss the romaine, apples, and spinach together in a salad bowl.
In a smaller bowl, whisk the other ingredients together. Drizzle over the greens and apples, toss again to distribute evenly, and serve. Garnish with a sprinkling of fresh parsley.
