Photo: Howard L. Puckett; Styling: Jan Gautro
Yield 4 servings (serving size: about 1 1/4 cups)
This salad contains sweet, spicy, nutty, and salty notes. Walnut oil adds the depth; you can substitute extravirgin olive oil--albeit with milder results.

  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons walnut oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
