Vegan Recipes – Heirloom Apple Salad

Category : Vegan Recipes

Vegan RecipesThis salad is hearty and substantial, which is why it works as a winter recipe. It is also quite colorful and crunchy. The main ingredients include heirloom apples, nuts of your choice, and shaved celery.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make this vegan recipe:

  • 1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 12 rosemary leaves, minced (the spiky needles)
  • 1 medium garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup /120 ml crème fraîche (or sour cream)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 3 large celery stalks, sliced see-though thin (reserve any celery leaves)
  • 2 crisp, flavorful heirloom apples, cut into sixths, and then thinly sliced
  • 4 handfuls arugula, baby gems, or baby romaine
  • 1/3 cup toasted hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, or pine nuts

Begin preparing this salad with the dressing first. Crush the sea salt, rosemary, garlic, and sugar into a paste with a mortar and pestle, or alternately, a knife can be used. Add in the creme fraiche and vinegar, taste and adjust with a bit of pepper and more salt if needed.

When you are ready to serve the salad, place the celery, salad greens, apples, and the nuts together in a large bowl and toss with half of the dressing. Add more dressing if you like. This recipe makes 4-6 servings. Enjoy!
