What makes the holidays better? Simple recipes. Well, I guess we have that mentality all year round here at Toby’s. Simple recipes just make life better. Of course, this Winter Lite Blue Salad is no different. Simple recipe, delicious food, life better.
It’s hard to go wrong with apple, candied pecans, blue cheese, and greens. Another new favorite winter ingredient for us: tangerines. Add that to the mix and impress your holiday eaters! We love this recipe – and we hope you will too.
It’s really entirely unnecessary to walk you through the steps of making this salad, so we’ll make this quick. Start with your spinach greens. Thinly slice an apple (we recommend an apple like a gala or fuji – they have a nice sweet crunch). Toss with candied pecans and a peeled and separated tangerine. Toss! Drizzle with Toby’s Lite Blue Cheese Dressing.
The Lite Blue Cheese is an important factor here because it drizzles just so much easier than the regular, thicker Blue Cheese. And, it’s an easy swap to make for a healthier holiday meal.
