Apple Pecan Salad


For the creamy lemon dressing:

  • 3/4 cup crème fraiche or plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

For the salad:

  • 2 heads Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 2 large Honeycrisp apples, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup candied pecans
  • 4 ounces aged white cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 tablespoon chives, minced


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the crème fraiche, 3 tablespoons of the lemon juice, the lemon zest, the honey, and the salt, whisking until smooth.
  2. Place the lettuce in a large salad bowl.
  3. Drizzle the apple slices with the remaining lemon juice and toss to prevent the apples from browning.
  4. Add the apple slices, the pecans, the grated cheese, and the chives to the salad bowl.
  5. Add the creamy lemon dressing and toss until the salad is well coated.
  6. Serve immediately.
