2 apples (McCoun or Honey Crisp), cored and sliced ½”
1 tsp cider vinegar

2 tbsp olive oil
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Pinch of salt and sugar
4 cups baby spinach
¼ cup dried cranberries
¼ walnuts, toasted and chopped

Directions


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Core and slice the apples.

Heat ½ tsp olive oil in an oven-safe skillet and sauté the apples over medium heat, add the cider vinegar and a pinch of salt. Roast in the oven for 5 minutes.

Slice the shallots and sauté in the skillet with 2 tbsp olive oil. Once the onions start to caramelize add the balsamic vinegar, mustard, salt and sugar.

Whisk together the vinaigrette. When it comes to a boil, reduce to a low heat.

Divide spinach among plates and top with hot apples and vinaigrette to wilt the spinach.
