Romaine-Apple salad with home made salad dressing

One of my favorite dishes to make is the salad. It’s a fairly simple concept consisting of a number of usually raw ingredients and a sauce. The greens by itself are pretty healthy, but if you want to go a little more overboard, you could put your daily dose of protein, iron, minerals, and vitamins in this kind of meal!

Even when summer is long over, I can still enjoy a good salad when I can. Because Wil and I had had a pretty hectic day yesterday, I didn’t feel like cooking, and so I decided to tumble a salad together instead, with my normal everyday ingredients when I figured that “Hey, apples would taste pretty darn good with a salad!”.

That’s how I ended up discarding my normal ingredients of choice, and went with something a little more unconventional instead.

The combination of the sweet and savory tastes in this salad is absolutely delicious (in my estimation), and I strongly suggest you try making the home-made dressing too, because it’ll blow your mind. Especially if your lactose-intolerant (like my husband), finding a salad dressing can be super difficult, and putting plain vegan mayonnaise isn’t really all that either.
