  • Ingredients

    1 tablespoon finely chopped Green Giant® Fresh Red Onion
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    1/4 cup sugar
    3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
    1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon celery seed

    2 red apples, cut into bite-size pieces
    1 cup crumbled blue or Gorgonzola cheese (4 oz)
    1 cup walnut halves, toasted

  • Directions

    1. In medium bowl, mix dressing ingredients with wire whisk until sugar is dissolved (dressing will be thick).
    2. In very large bowl (at least 4-quart), gently mix salad ingredients. Just before serving, pour dressing over salad; toss to coat.
    How-To: - To toast walnuts, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet.
    Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until nuts are golden brown. 
    Time-Saver: Save time by using a bottled salad dressing.
