Apple and Almond Green Salad


Sometimes you need a simple salad.  One that goes with dinner, but doesn’t feel like the same old salad.  Sometimes one that looks impressive, but doesn’t take time.  Sometimes you need a salad that just does the job.  This is a nice and easy way to make a salad that tastes nice and a bit special, but doesn’t require too much extra effort.  The dressing is also a great staple of mine, and works really well with apples.  I hope you like it, you try it, and you share it!
