Blue Cheese & Apple Salad Recipe

They arrive slowly, one thought, followed by another. Followed by a grumble. I start wandering the house. Opening the fridge first, then the freezer. The fridge again. The cabinets. The fridge again. A glass of water.

I have a confession to make.

I’m a late evening snacker. Not a midnight snacker, but about an 8 or 9pm snacker.

I just get the munchies at that time of night. In a serious way.

Take right now, for instance.

Sometimes the glass of water cures me. More often than not, I still want something. We eat a lot of popcorn in our house, sometimes plain, sometimes with flavors like Cheesy BBQ or Cool Ranch. But that wasn’t going to suffice this time.

I turned to an old favorite, my blue cheese and apple salad. This is so good. It’s so easy too!

Blue Cheese & Apple Salad
1 apple
6-8 basil leaves
blue cheese crumbles
balsamic vinegar

Core the apple and chop roughly. Divide between two bowls. Sprinkle blue cheese crumbles over the top and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Garnish with basil leaves.

You can substitute pears for the apples, or feta for the blue cheese.
