It’s a Slice
A new classic
A classic combination of sweet and salty to satisfy your lunch cravings. Creamy blue cheese, tender Boston lettuce and delicate frisée make for eye candy on a plate, especially when you add ruby red slices of apple and caramel-coloured nuts. You can combine any lettuce including iceberg, but Boston (a.k.a. butter lettuce) provides a nice silky texture. Add your favourite blue cheese, candied pecans, slices of red delicious apple and dried cherries or cranberries. For the dressing: Whisk ¼ cup cider vinegar, 1 tsp Dijon mustard, 2 teaspoons maple syrup and ½-3/4 cup olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust. Dressing will serve six.
