Apple-Almond Salad

We thought this light, refreshing salad made a terrific accompaniment for pork. Cortland apples hold their color best in the salad, but any tart, firm variety will do.

Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup salad oil
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons malt or cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 6 cups torn mixed greens
  • 3 medium-size apples, cut into wedges
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 2 tablespoons sliced scallions
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted

Instructions

In a screw-top jar, combine the oil, sugar, vinegar, salt, and almond extract. Cover the jar and shake well until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Chill in the refrigerator for several hours.

Just before serving, combine the greens, apple wedges, celery, and scallions in a salad bowl. Sprinkle with the almonds. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss. Serve immediately.

Comments
  • This little delight would rival any salad at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. It is perfect to serve outside during the warm New England summer evenings!
