Yes, we are cooking things and putting them in a salad here! Not just any things… sweet onions and also apples!
A salad with warm apples and onions?
Yep! That’s what I’m saying here. Hold on to your hats because this is going to blow up your world. Let’s just talk about the ingredients first off.
This caramelized apple and vadalia onion salad is so simple yet so good and cozy too. Who knew a salad could be cozy?
What else is in this strange dish you call a salad?
Caramelized apples and vadalia onions are served over romaine topped with crumbled feta and chopped walnuts then drizzled with a tart honey mustard vinaigrette. Sounds good right? it is!
This is such a simple salad so it’s easy to make but so flavorful. I tried a similar salad at a wedding we recently attended. Of course after the first bite I thought… I’m totally making and blogging this.
So here ya go! Enjoy. =)
