Apple and Date Salad

This salad is inspired by Charoset (ka-ROW-set), a chopped apple and walnut dish that is traditionally served during Passover Seder. You can substitute the walnuts for pistachios or pecans, or make it nut-free. The crushed matzo adds a nice crunch, but if you don't have it, and aren't making this dish kosher for Passover, you can add croutons or lightly crushed crackers.

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the vinegar, honey, mustard, and cinnamon. Season with salt and pepper. Add the oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly to emulsify.
  2. Add the spinach (or greens of choice) to a large bowl. Add half of salad dressing and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. To the bowl with remaining dressing, add the apples, dates (or raisins), and walnuts. Toss to combine. Spoon apple mixture over dressed salad mix. Top with the matzo crackers and serve immediately.

Recipe Tips

If making ahead, make the vinaigrette and chop the nuts and fruit. Assemble the salad just before serving.
