I’m a Michigan girl, born and raised, proud of it. Here’s a shout-out for one of our great crops. Looking forward to Autumn, visiting orchards, making apple crisps, pies, apple sauce….🍎

On a recent balmy summer evening, I made this salad for friends and family. I’ve adapted it to a single serving to calculate Weight Watchers Smart Points.
Ambrosia Apple, Goat Cheese & Toasted Walnut Salad
Single serving Weight Watchers Smart Points 6 (before dressing)
- Baby Spinach
- Chopped Radicchio
- Ambrosia Apple slices
- 8 – Toasted Walnut Halves, chopped
- 1 oz Goat Cheese – crumbled
- Thin-sliced Red Onion
- Sliced Hearts of Palm
On the side, I made a dressing of extra virgin olive oil and red apple balsamic vinegar and drizzled it over the top.
It’s an easy, delicious, refreshing summer salad on the side or as a meat-free entree on a hot night.
I’ve lived in Michigan my entire life. And I LOVE MICHIGAN!! I love the change in seasons and I find myself falling in love with this autumn of 2014. The colors have been as stunning as I can remember. Only in recent days have we begun to see leaves shredding down at an accelerated rate. I’m just giving a shout out to Michigan Apples as I have just taken my third apple crisp (in a week’s time), out of my oven. We grow (Michiganders being the “we”) superb apples here! I’ve been making double the crumble topping and then baking off a fresh crock o’ apple crisp every couple of days. My mom always said, “pie should be eaten in the first two days”. Words to live by and the same applies to apple crisp in case this needs to be clarified. So there’s my ode to Michigan Apples.
