For an especially elegant presentation, this salad can be arranged on individual plates instead of one large platter. When trimming the base of the romaine hearts, be sure to leave a small part of each base attached to hold the leaves together.


1 1/4 cups Vegetable oil
1/3 cup Apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoon Apple juice concentrate; thawed
2 tablespoon Red onion; minced
1 3/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg; ground
1/2 teaspoon Ginger; ground
1/4 teaspoon Black pepper
1 cup Red onion; thinly sliced
2 large Apples; peeled, cored, diced
5 each Romaine Lettuce Hearts; halved
3/4 cup Pecan; toasted, coarsley chopped

Original recipe makes 10



Whisk first 8 ingredients in small bowl for dressing. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Refrigerate. Rewhisk before using.)

Place sliced onion in medium bowl. Cover with cold water; let stand 30 minutes. Drain well. Place 1/3 cup dressing in another medium bowl. Add apples; toss to coat.

Trim off tips of romaine halves, leaving 5-inch lengths. Cut each romaine half lengthwise into 3 wedges. Fan wedges on large platter. Top with red onion slices. Drizzle salad with dressing, then sprinkle with apples and pecans.

I didn't bother to tone down the taste of the red onions cause the onions I got were of amazing flavour
