Enjoy this tasty, sweet fall salad with a savory and seasonal entrée. Use Granny Smith or your favorite kind of apples. Try leaving out the sugar for a more tart flavor.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 package baby spinach (10 ounces, washed. Could also use Kale or other greens)
  • 1 1/2 apples (chopped, can use 1-2 apples)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Granny Smith apples are recommended for salad, but any apple on hand will work. Try decreasing or cutting out the sugar if you like your salad less sweet.
