Granny Smith Apple & Greens Salad with Sweet Lemon-Parsley Vinaigrette {for Stemilt Growers}


While this space offers no indication of such, the hustle and bustle of our kitchen has steadily continued over the past months... ebbing and flowing with the hustle and bustle of our lives. So, thankfully, hunger is not the reason for my absence.

Over the past few months, interspersed here and there, new recipes have been tasted and tweaked, newfound flavors and favored ingredients discovered... some of which have made it out of my kitchen… to pen... to paper… to photo.

There are several recipes new to the Stemilt Grower’s website which, I have to say, are some of my favorites...


And this week, they are featuring this very Springtime appropriate salad (The Ultimate Green Salad) that celebrates all that is fresh and promising about this season... with a little nod to this month’s particular penchant for green!


Featuring Stemilt’s delightfully tart and fresh Granny Smith apple, shaved into graceful ribbons, this Granny Smith Apple & Greens Salad with Sweet Lemon-Parsley Vinaigrette is the perfect plating to not only lend a wink and nod to St. Paddy’s Day but to the season, in general. Deliciously fresh, crisp and vibrant in hue, mixed baby greens, shaved brussel sprouts, green onion, celery, green grapes, crunchy pistachios, and parsley come together beautifully to deliver a welcomed springtime salad that is not only pleasing to the eye (with those delicate ribbons of apple nestled here and there), but pleasing to the palate as well.
