Apple, Prosciutto and Walnut Salad might just be my official salad of fall 2010. It’s divine.

A few weeks ago, one of my cohorts at Tablespoon mentioned making an Apple Salad for this month’s content. Apple salad, I thought … should I grate it and toss with a little lemon and then add to a coleslaw? Should I do something with beets and apples? But then it came to me: Apples, Prosciutto, Walnuts, Cheddar … these are to-die-for together.

The crispy, sweet apples are a lovely contrast to the salty prosciutto, creamy cheese and meaty walnuts. Heaven on a plate, if you will.

And so it was. The kids and I feasted on this salad for dinner one evening, and adored every last bite. Try it sometime. You won’t be disappointed.

Looking for other ideas for you CSA produce? Try these:

Apples – The kids and I feasted on apples this afternoon. They were so juicy. Or, try your hand at making Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce. It’s divine.

Tomatoes – Heirloom tomatoes are perfect for slicing up and serving with a sprinkle of sea salt and a touch of good olive oil. Or, try Heirloom Tomato and Nectarine Salad, which is a lovely salad for a warm fall evening.

Beet Greens – Beet greens can be used like any other greens. Tonight, we will be having them sauteed in a little olive oil with garlic and red pepper flakes. Delish. Also, save the baby beets. They can be cleaned and chopped and then added to salads raw.
