Red Wine Vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup salad oil
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • Dash of pepper

Apple and Cheese Salad:
  • 2 Golden Delicious apples, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons (or less) lemon juice
  • 3 to 4 cups torn red leaf lettuce
  • 3 to 4 cups torn spinach
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped cashews
  • 1/2 cup crumbled bleu cheese
  • 6 slices bacon, crisp-fried, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms


For the vinaigrette, whisk the vinegar, oil, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt, oregano, sugar and pepper in a small bowl.

For the salad, toss the apples with the lemon juice in a medium bowl to slow the browning process.  Toss the apples, lettuce, spinach, cashews, bleu cheese, bacon and mushrooms in a large salad bowl.  Pour in the dressing and toss to coat.

May omit the lemon juice if the apples are chopped immediately before serving
