Ingredients

  • CANDIED WALNUTS:
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup walnuts, halves or large pieces
  • DRESSING:
  • ¼ cup MUSSELMAN’S® Apple Butter
  • ½ cup MUSSELMAN’S® Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • SALAD:
  • 4 cups mixed greens
  • 1 apple, cored and thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped

Instructions

Candied Walnuts Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat. 

On medium heat, add the sugar and butter to a skillet and let it melt. 

Add the cinnamon and the walnuts, stirring to coat. Cook until the sugar is completely dissolved, and starting to caramelize - about 2 minutes more.

Pour the walnuts onto the lined baking sheet in a single layer, and let them cool.

Dressing Whisk the apple butter and vinegar in a small bowl. Add salt and pepper, then slowly whisk in the olive oil. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper if necessary.

Salad Place the greens in a large bowl. Top with the sliced apples, crumbled goat cheese, bacon, and candied walnuts. Serve with dressing on the side.
