Make Salad Exciting With Honey
Salad is a simple and healthy meal or side, which may taste a little boring to some. Usually, without the support from additional ingredients, salads are more or less a bowl of green vegetables. For those looking to make a salad more exciting, Anna’s Honey recommends using luscious honey varietals.
Honey is a sweetener found in nature and performs well in salads. Only one tablespoon of honey can add sweetness to crisp and soft lettuce leaves.
Most salad dressings include large quantities of sugar or other sweeteners, which may devalue salad’s terrific nutritional benefits. By using honey in place of sugar in salad dressings or other toppings, salad can taste better without compromising its quality.
We have a honey recipe to help make salads something to look forward to. Anna’s Crunchy Apple Salad includes simple ingredients and is easy to make.
Anna’s Crunchy Honey Apple Salad:
- 3 Cups of Romaine Lettuce
- 1 Apple
- 1 Tablespoon of clover honey
- 1 & ½ Tablespoons of balsamic vinaigrette
- ½ Cup of pecans
- ¼ Cup crumbled feta cheese
- Optional: ½ Cup of diced sweet onions
To make this crunchy apple salad, begin by washing the romaine lettuce leaves. Romaine lettuce is sturdy and offers a satisfying crunch, which works well with the salad’s other primary ingredient, the apple.
After drying, cut the apples into thin slices, and the lettuce into larger pieces. The apples should be placed on top, using lettuce as a bed. For those who enjoy onion in their salad, 1/2 a cup of sweet onion can contribute to the crunchy texture and add a contrasting flavor to the honey.
Gently drizzle the honey over the apple slices and add the balsamic vinaigrette. Be careful not to let the apples absorb too much of the dressing, add enough to the lettuce leaves to enjoy the dressing in each bite.
Add whole or crushed pecans, crumbled feta cheese, along with diced sweet onions and enjoy. This salad offers a satisfying crunch between lettuce, apples, and pecans alongside a rich and sweet apple-honey taste. This flavor is supplemented and enhanced by supporting acidic notes from the balsamic vinaigrette.
We hope you enjoy trying out this crunchy apple salad recipe. For delicious clover honey to make salad exciting, shop Anna’s Honey in mason jars.
