Recipe Ingredients for Candied Walnut and Apple Spinach Salad

1 pound raw spinach leaves
5 ounces arugula
4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
1/2 small red onion
2 small apples
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup brown sugar
5 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil

Recipe Directions for Candied Walnut and Apple Spinach Salad

Prepare your spinach and arugula (wash and pick off bad parts). Finely slice half of a small red onion. Cube two apples of your choice; any type of apple will go well with this. Either buy pre-crumbled blue or gorgonzola cheese, or do it yourself. In a sauce pan, heat brown sugar mixed with water, add walnuts, and toast them until caramelized- do not burn the walnuts! Toss ingredients together, and add balsamic vinegar and olive oil to taste. Finally, add some fresh-cracked black pepper. Enjoy!
