Salad with Apple and Red Onion...


Okay, I'll admit it. I sometimes feed my family frozen pizza. Sigh. Surely I'm not the only one?

Well, at least I did give them a yummy salad to go along with it, right? Doesn't that count for something? HA!!!


Salad with Apple and Red Onion

1 head of lettuce of choice (we prefer romaine)
2 small apples of your choice, quartered, cored, and sliced
1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
1 tablespoon honey
Coarse salt and black pepper

Place lettuce, apple, and onion in a salad bowl. Place oil, vinegar, mustard and honey in a small plastic container and fit lid on container. Shake dressing to combine, 1 minute. Pour dressing over salad, toss, and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Your salad looks excellent! I have to admit that on the nights we have frozen pizza I'm usually too done-for to even throw together a salad. ;)

Pizza is rarely homemade at our house. Don't feel bad. ;)

Jonathan loves frozen garlic crust pizza...so who cares? If that's what our families want, let's feed it to them. It's when we do it ALL the time...when they need more...when it comes a problem, in my opinion. Now, if only I could get him to like salad. :D

That salad looks great! I have been known to serve frozen pizza now and then. I'd like to be super woman and have a healthy, home cooked meal everynight... but I'll never be super woman. Sigh.

That salad looks good! My mom makes this, almost everyday! I am jealous of that pizza! :o)

That's a lovely looking salad!

When my children were small, I was embarrassed when someone came to the door and my son said, "Are you the pizza man?" Our family loves pizza -- homemade, ordered, frozen -- any kind. But, I realized that I was ordering it too often!

Your salad looks so delicious; we love a good salad around here. We also love a good pizza -- which is not homemade most of the time;)

Take Care,

Trixie

Once in a while we have frozen pizza too or pizza from Costco the Take and Go. I throw together a sald too. Your salad looks great. You could try the granny smith appleas with dried cranberries and walnuts. It is yummy!
