Ingredients

APPLE SYRUP:
  • one quart sweet apple cider
APPLE CIDER VINAIGRETTE:
  • 2 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
  • 2-3 Tbs. Apple Syrup (see recipe above)
  • 1/2 cup 100% Olive Oil (light, not extra virgin, that will alter the taste of the apple cider)
  • Salt and pepper
ARUGULA SALAD:
  • 2 sweet "eating" apples (such as Cortland, Braeburn or Golden Delicious)
  • 4 slices hard goat cheese (or 8 oz. soft goat cheese)
  • 4 handfuls arugula

Directions

SYRUP: Pour one quart sweet apple cider into a cast iron saute pan over medium heat. Reduce the cider slowly to one cup. Remove from heat and let cool. It will have the consistency of thick syrup.

VINAIGRETTE: Whisk the apple cider vinegar and the apple syrup in a mixing bowl. Add the olive oil and salt and pepper to taste, mix together.

SALAD: Peel and slice the apples, then place the slices on a plate in a circular pattern. Toss the arugula with the vinaigrette. Place the salad on top of the apple slices. Put the goat cheese on top of the salad and serve.

Notes

Timing: Prepare the apple syrup, vinaigrette and then the salad.
