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.
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.
If you end up making this salad, I would LOVE if you shared it with me by tagging #tippsinthekitch I hope everyone has a safe and fun Thanksgiving!!Print
