Ingredients

3 tbsp (45 mL) cider vinegar
3 tbsp (45 mL) apple juice
2 tbsp (30 mL) walnut oil or 
olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
A pinch of sugar
6 oz (180 g) Canadian Blue cheese
2 tbsp (30 mL) finely chopped toasted walnuts
2 medium tart green apples
10 cups (2.5 L) cut-up salad greens
Sweetened dried cranberries (optional)

Preparation

Combine vinegar, apple juice and oil in a small bowl. Whisk together thoroughly. Add salt, pepper and a little sugar to taste. Set dressing aside.

Cheese Truffles
Crumble Canadian Blue cheese into a medium bowl. Shape into 18 balls, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter. Roll balls in chopped walnuts to form truffles. Thread 3 balls onto each of 6 wooden skewers.

Core and thinly slice apples. Combine with salad greens in a large bowl and toss with dressing. Divide salad among 6 chilled plates, top with a skewer of Cheese truffles and garnish with sweetened dried cranberries, if desired.

Variation: Replace walnuts with finely chopped toasted pecans and apples with firm ripe pears.

Tips

To serve Cheese Truffles as an hors-d'oeuvre, place each one in a small fluted paper cup. Garnish with sweet pepper or fresh herbs and place on a cheese tray. Cheese Truffles can be prepared ahead and stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days before serving. Remove from the fridge 1/2 hour before serving and roll in chopped nuts.
