Apples 'N Greens


8 people


  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 medium Red Delicious apple
  • 1 medium Granny Smith apple
  • 4 cups torn red-tipped leaf lettuce
  • 4 cups torn romaine lettuce
With sugar and spice, the dressing does double duty for a festive do-ahead salad. Not only does it dress the greens, it keeps the apple pieces from darkening.


  1. In medium bowl, combine all ingredients except apples and lettuce; whisk to blend. Core and cut apples into bite-sized pieces. Toss apples in dressing. Combine greens and gently layer over apples. Refrigerate, covered, several hours.
  2. To Serve: Toss lightly; serve in bowl or on individual plates.
