Fall Flavored Apple and Walnut Salad

Apple and Walnut Fall Flavored Salad



  • 1 apple (cored and sliced thin)
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup walnut (crushed or halved)
  • 16 oz baby spinach


  • Combine all ingredients and toss gently
  • Drizzle the Poppy Seed dressing to taste



  • 1/4 cup Gravenstein Apple Balsamic
  • 1 small shallot
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 cup Roasted Walnut Oil


  • In a medium bowl, add the Balsamic.
  • Peel the shallot and grate it directly into the bowl. Add the poppy seeds, salt, and ground mustard, and whisk to combine.
  • Whisking the dressing steadily, pour the oil into the dressing in a slow stream. Continue whisking until completely combined.
  • Transfer to a covered container and store in the fridge for several weeks. The dressing will separate as it sits; shake to recombine before using.
