1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
Sprinkle of ground clove to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

8 cups spring greens
4 fresh Michigan Gala apples, thin sliced
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese

Lemon juice (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. For Vinaigrette: mix together all ingredients (except oil) until sugar is dissolved. Add oil and mix well. The dressing will keep refrigerated for up to one week.
  2. For Salad: Toss salad greens and apple cider vinaigrette together in bowl.
  3. Arrange diced chicken on top of greens. Sprinkle cheese to cover.
  4. Arrange apple slices in circular rows to cover (Tip: apple will oxidize, these should be placed just before serving. You may want to drop apple slices in lemon juice and water to prevent browning.)
