This is a great, creative way to gift a few, good friends a "Salad Luncheon."
All you need is a cute, little basket and 6 mason jars filled with some yummy Autumn salad ingredients (recipe below) and a bottle of Salad Girl Crisp Apple Maple Dressing. Voila! An Autumn salad luncheon for 6.
The Honey Crisp Apple was developed by the University of Minnesota and is grown in Minnesota. Its most unique quality is the extremely crisp and delicate texture. There really is no other apple like it. The flavor has a nice balance between sugar and acid giving it a sweet taste with a hint of tartness- great raw eating.

Sartori Dolcina Gorgonzola: "Like a finely tailored, pinstriped Italian suit, our blue-veined friend is always distinctive. Extra cream and indulgent aging are the secrets to this mild, rich cheese-lover’s dream. Gorgonzola was first born in the town of the same name near Milan in 879 A.D. Perfected by Sartori in 2007, this award-winning “dolce latte,” or sweet milk–style Gorgonzola, is especially silky and smooth" -- and delicious in our yummy salad recipe below!
