This is what I often make whenever I want a simple and light green salad. Depending on what I have on hand, I might swap out the apple for a tomato, the horseradish for mustard, or the poppy seeds for toasted sunflower seeds.
6-7 cups mixed lettuce, in bite sized pieces
1 apple, sliced thin
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice, (1 orange)
1-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, to taste
1/2 tsp prepared horseradish
1 tbsp poppy seeds
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Place the lettuce in a salad bowl. Add the apple slices. Toss the apple in a bit of orange juice first if you aren't planning on serving this right away; that will keep the apple slices from turning brown.
When you are ready to serve the salad, pour the dressing over it and toss.
