Cheese and Apple Salad

by Laura on May 6, 2011

At our house, when you’re the birthday boy or girl, “plan your heart’s wishes, plan your menus, and enjoy” is the rule of the day.  Here is our Sweet Boy’s supper menu for his 17th, which we celebrated Wednesday: filet of beef juicy Lucy (grilled filet stuffed with fresh mozzarella and wrapped in thick bacon), cheese and apple salad, bell pepper salad, dark chocolate cake, milk chocolate ice cream, and grape soda.  Hey, you’re only 17 once!  Here is the recipe for our cheese and apple salad.  I julienne Gruyére cheese and peeled and cored apples, one tart and one sweet, add lemon juice and a just a little mayonnaise, season the lot, and toss it in a serving bowl. Simple and delicious.

Yes, it was. Some of the menus as the kids were growing up were pretty funny, and that was its own kind of wonderful.

Cheese and apples are always great and this looks like a perfect way to combine the two. I look forward to trying this.

Thank you. I think the simplest recipes are often the best.
