Hello G&G readers! I’m Meg. I’m a Denver native gone Parisian and I really like all things pretty and excessive. And food. Now that spring is approaching, it is the ideal time to experiment with different fruits and veggies to create spring delights that are perfect for picnicking.
This salad is a little somethin’ somethin’ that I discovered while studying abroad during high school in Normandy. My host family made it one time, and I fell in love. Therefore I am here 6 years later sharing it here.
WHAT YOU NEED
-2 green apples
-block of swiss cheese
YIELD: 4 hungry people (cut above list in ½ if preparing for two people)
PREP TIME: 15 minutes
Start off by cutting up all of the apples and endives. The method I usually use is apples in cubes and endives chopped then cut again like little pies… but get creative if you wish!
Next, cut the Swiss cheese into cubes about the same size and put it all in a big mixing bowl (preferably the one you want to serve it in).
Sprinkle the walnuts and dried onions on top (or whatever else your heart desires), and get ready to drool!
Last but not least, add the dressing right before you plan to serve the salad. The dressing used above is a simple cream dressing, but many different kinds of dressing are delicious on this simply fresh salad. One of my favorites is with a vinaigrette dressing.
This salad is absolutely perfect on a warm day with fresh produce and cold cut meats. Not to mention it is perfect for a pot-luck or a picnic!
The last step is to enjoy it and think about how beautiful the world is.
I don’t remember how I first discovered Meg’s delicious little blog- maybe she left a comment here and her blog name De quelle planete es-tu?/What Planet are you from? piqued my curiosity… But however I discovered it/her, I definitely want to be from Meg’s planet! Make sure you check out all her sweet Parisian adventures over at her fabulously named blog immediately! Merci Meg!
And now I’m off to eat some delicious Parisian-inspired pastries right here in Tokyo!
And just maybe, a little salad too!
