Recipe: Apple lettuce salad

This apple and lettuce salad will remind you of apple pie — without the calories and fat.

To boost flavor and nutritional value, use a mixture of greens for this salad, such as endive, radicchio, arugula and even kale.


Directions

Mix the apple juice, lemon juice, oil, brown sugar, mustard and apple pie spice in a large salad bowl. Add the apple and toss to coat. Add the salad greens and toss to mix just before serving.
