Apple, Hazelnut and Red Wine Cheese Salad Recipe

Receta de Ensalada de Manzanas, Avellanas y Queso al Vino Tinto

15 minutes

4 servings

This salad is an adaptation of the ‘ensalada de manzanas con Murcia al Vino’ recipe, a traditional Spanish salad originating from Murcia. This version adds a touch of sweetness from orange blossom honey and uses an artisan goat’s and sheep’s milk cheese made with red wine mixed with the milk - rather than the traditional Murcia al Vino which is soaked in red wine to color the rind. The contrast of colors, textures and flavors is both stunning and delicious.

How To Cook


In a mixing bowl, toss the cut apple pieces and juice from half of the lemon together. Set aside while you make the dressing.


Make the dressing by whisking the shallot, honey, vinegar, and juice from remaining half of lemon in a bowl. Slowly stir in the olive oil to emulsify it with the vinegar mixture. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Add cheese cubes to the apples and toss with the dressing. Arrange lettuce, dressed apples and cheese on a platter or individual bowls or plates and sprinkle with the chopped nuts. Drizzle any remaining dressing from the bowl over the salads.

Serve immediately with a glass of Spanish white or rosé wine.
