Eating this Healthy Green Apple Salad will just make you feel great! So many textures and flavors. Tart. Tangy. Crispy, Sweet. Chewy, Nutty!

Simple Green Apple Salad

Simple power packed salads are the best. They round out and compliment whatever you’re eating. And, serving this healthy green apple salad with meatballs, which are more robust, was the right call! 

Asian Apple Salad

Unlike my Great Gatsby Waldorf Salad which is blue cheese based, this Asian apple salad is fresh light and has an array of flavors and textures! And, there’s gorgonzola! 

Apple Salad Recipe

An apple salad recipe can be made with most any variety apple. But, for me, my favorites to use are:

  • Granny Smith
  • Pink Lady
  • Fuji
  • Honeycrisp
  • Pink Lady
  • Cosmic Crisp
  • Rave

Granny Smith Apple Salad Dressing

With this salad, I didn’t want a salad dressing that would compete with nor overwhelm the natural flavors of the tart Granny Smith apple bites and the subtle baby bokchoy. I wanted you to taste both with each bite. And, it all comes together with a simple Asian-inspired vinagrette!
