Fast Metabolism Friendly Chopped Apple Salad

I wanted to stop by to say Hi and to share with you a great recipe that is perfect for this time of the year when apples are in such abundance.  This recipe is filled with dark leafy greens and crisp sweet apples.  I topped it with a vinaigrette made of pomegranate juice and olive oil.  It is gorgeous to look at and better to eat.

I served blue cheese on the side so the salad remained FMD friendly.  I meant to add some toasted nuts to the salad but forgot when I was putting it together as a side for my Soup Swap that I hosted. This salad was a huge hit at that party and I will be serving it again and again.  I am sharing it during #AppleWeek.  You can learn all about #AppleWeek and get tons of delicious apple recipes by checking out my this page on my Day in the Life on the Farm blog.
