Apples are so hot right now

At the Mack's Apples Farm Stand, there is this big chart on the wall. It tells you which apples work best in which dishes. Cortlands, it turns out, work best in salads because their flesh is slower to brown than most apples.

This weekend, Alex and I had dinner at our friends Catie and Matt's apartment. Matt made a fantastic Mac and Cheese (Oprah's favorite!) Catie made some awesome apple crisp. And, Alex and I brought a fall salad, made with our fresh picked Cortlands.

Fruits of Fall Salad
  • 1 5oz bag of salad spring mix
  • 1/4 cup of balsamic vinaigrette
  • 1 3oz package of chevre cheese
  • 2 medium apples, cored and sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1 cup of candied pecans

Toss spring mix and balsamic vinaigrette in a large salad or mixing bowl.

With a fork, crumble chevre on top of salad. Add apple slices, dried cranberries, raisins, and candied pecans. Toss and serve immediately.
