Romaine Salad with Apple Vinaigrette

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


8 servings (1 cup vinaigrette)

Looking for a salad that’s simple but special? This one is always a hit when I bring it to a potluck at work. I blend apples into the vinaigrette and mix them with the romaine, too.


  • 1/3 cup chopped peeled tart apple
  • 1/3 chopped peeled ripe pear
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • SALAD:
  • 8 cups torn romaine
  • 2 medium apples, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 1-1/2 cups crumbled feta cheese


  1. In a blender, combine the first seven ingredients. Cover and process for 30 seconds or until smooth. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady stream.
  2. In a serving bowl, combine the romaine, apples and pine nuts. Drizzle with vinaigrette; sprinkle with cheese.
