Makes 4 servings

Crunchy walnuts make this salad special. Toast them in a dry skillet on the stovetop to bring out their nutty flavor.

For the vinaigrette

5 tablespoons walnut oil

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Salt and pepper to taste

For the salad

2 sweet-tart apples (such as Granny Smith and McIntosh), cut into 1-inch chunks

2 cups coarsely chopped romaine lettuce

½ cup finely crumbled blue cheese

½ cup chopped walnuts

Whisk together all the vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl.

Toss the apples and lettuce in a large bowl. Add the vinaigrette and cheese and toss again.

Divide between salad plates and sprinkle the salads with walnuts.
