- To make the dressing, add balsamic, almond butter, maple syrup, mustard, and optional apple cider vinegar, salt/pepper to taste in a small bowl and whisk until combined.
(You can also mix in jar with lid and shake vigorously, or use a mini food processor or NutriBullet)
- In large bowl, add salad mix, apple slices, walnuts and goat cheese.
Drizzle with dressing and toss to coat.
- Serve with dinner or have with lunch.
-I used my NutriBullet to make sure the the dressing was well blended.
-If making salad for one portion, dressing will keep fresh in airtight container in fridge for up to 5 days.
-Dressing as written will serve about 4 people, with each serving size 1.5-2 TBS
-Add about 1 TBS of water if you prefer a thinner dressing.
-Salad pairs well with grilled chicken, or balsamic glazed salmon.
-If looking for a vegetarian protein option, lentils, tempeh, and quinoa are all great plant-based sources!
