Chopped apple salad with Toasted Walnuts, Blue Cheese and Pomegranate vinaigrette (苹果核桃沙拉配石榴油醋)

Christmas is on the way!! Have you start baking for Christmas??
This is the most excited month of the year... Christmas is here...
My kids are busy in Sunday school. They are preparing some performance in the coming Christmas celebration in our church. Shawn is going to perform a song and a dance together with his Sunday school friends.

Today i am going to share a simple and light salad. This is another Bobby Flay's recipe. This is a good starter for a Christmas dinner. There is chopped apple, toasted walnut, some greens, with a light and sweet pomegranate vinaigrette.  Some crumble blue cheese is added too.  

"If you aren't a fan of blue cheese," Flay says, "try substituting feta or goat cheese in the salad. Both pair really well with apples and pomegranates."




 简单的开胃沙拉..
石榴油醋是法式淋汁. 配上苹果,核桃,绿沙拉菜和山羊乳酪还挺搭配的.


Crispy and juicy apples.


Recipe call for baby spinach and endive which i don't have, i used romaine lettuce instead. I also used pomegranate juice instead of molasses. We hardly sees this type of special ingredients in our leading supermarket.

Pour in Pomegranate Vinaigrette, toss toss toss everything in there and enjoy!!!
