Apples and Roquefort Salad


My husband, the salad maker in our home, said we needed to use some apples that were in the salad bin…a perfect chance to try this delicious recipe adapted from Golden Blossom HoneyIt’s a great fall-season salad; and sautéing the apples in the oil and honey made it exceptional.  I always keep some kind of blue cheese in small portions in the freezer and we usually have all the remaining ingredients on hand too.  I used my apple wedger to make nice wedges in a hurry.
We enjoyed it with baked pork chops; giving me time to sauté the apples at the last minute.
