Salad:

About 6 C fresh spinach

1 large apple, cored and sliced very thin

1 C grated aged white Cheddar

½ C dried orange-flavored cranberries

½ C sliced almonds

Honey-Apple Cider Vinaigrette:

¼ C olive oil

¼ C honey

¼ C apple cider vinegar

2 tsp mustard (Dijon or honey mustard)

¾ tsp salt, or to taste

¾ tsp black pepper

For salad, add all ingredients in the order listed to a large bowl. Set aside.

To make the vinaigrette, add all ingredients to a glass jar or lidded container. Shake vigorously until combined; taste vinaigrette and tweak as necessary to taste. Drizzle over salad, toss to combine, and serve immediately. Leftover vinaigrette will keep airtight in the fridge for up to one week.
