Frisée and Honeycrisp Apple Salad with Dried Cranberries & Toasted Almonds

I have the most delicious side salad for you all!  It’s light & crisp, and absolutely perfect for Fall.  Frisée and Honeycrisp Apple Salad with Dried Cranberries & Toasted Almonds.  So simple yet so amazing.

I am totally digging the combination of the crispy Frisée, tart honeycrisp apples (gimme all the honeycrisps), sweet dried cranberries, and toasted sliced almonds, all paired with an apple cider dijon vinaigrette- Oh-my-YUM.

Frisée and Honeycrisp Apple Salad with Dried Cranberries & Toasted Almonds

If you’ve never had Frisée before, it’s a little more bitter than other greens, which is why I love pairing it with a hint of sweetness. It’s kind of all over the place with it’s frizzy texture, so make sure to break it up into small pieces before serving.  I decided to keep this version very simple since I was serving it as a side, however this salad would be absolutely delicious with roasted chicken and if you want to go a step further, crispy bacon pieces.  Yum yum yum.
