1½ tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 large Granny Smith apple
1½ teaspoon honey
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup pepitas (green pumpkin seeds)
2½ ounces (about 5 cups) pre-washed spring greens salad blend
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Cooking instruction summary:
Toast the pepitas: In a medium-sized skillet, toast the pepitas over medium heat, stirring frequently, until they are turning golden on the edges and making little popping noises. Transfer the pepitas to a small bowl to cool.Make the dressing: In a cup or jar, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, honey and mustard until emulsified. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.Just before serving, chop the apple into thin, bite-sized pieces. Place your greens in a large serving bowl. Top with sliced apple, dried cranberries and toasted pepitas. Use a fork to crumble the goat cheese over the salad. Drizzle the salad with just enough dressing to lightly coat the leaves once tossed (you probably won't need all of it). Gently toss to mix all of the ingredients and serve!
