The 72nd recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Chicory Salad with Green Apple, Cranberries and Blue Cheese, and can be found in Ellie Krieger's book Weeknight Wonders, on page 37. The theme for the week was chosen by me: Savvy Salads.
Ingredient list: lettuce, apple, blue cheese, cranberries, olive oil, white wine vinegar, salt, and pepper.
I made this salad twice, once as specified, and once adding shredded chicken to it to make it a more complete meal, both times absolutely delicious, light, and refreshing. We eat a lot of salad, actually we eat salad every single day, so it is nice to have just some simple and tasty change ups in the salad realm to keep it interesting. This is a very good one, crunchy and sweet with the apple and cranberries which compliments the creamy tang of the blue cheese. Definitely one to repeat often.
