  2. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad, toss well, and top with the goat cheese and blue cheese.


  • Because apples brown when exposed to the air, it’s a good idea to enjoy this salad within 30 minutes of preparation.
  • The remainder of the salad ingredients can be assembled ahead of time, and the dressing can also be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge until serving.
