What Is The Best Apple To Use For A Salad?
The delicious easy feta apple salad is brought to us by our Contributor Ilona from Ilona’s Passion.

There is no right or wrong apple to use in a salad but the ones listed above certainly work really well.
Apple Feta Salad
Fall is almost here and perfect for the season is a feta apple salad with home made lemony dressing. Recipes with pumpkin, pears, apples and sweet potatoes are very popular at this time of the year.
I have already made a couple of delicious recipes with pumpkin and apples.
I love fall. It is the perfect season to spend more time in my kitchen baking and cooking.
For something different, I thought I would use apples for this salad. I’ve never had any fruit in my salads before and wondered whether it might taste a little bit strange.
But oh, I was totally wrong!
The combination of lettuce, feta and apples is great and so incredibly tasty. I should have done it sooner!
A couple of weeks ago I made a Cucumber Tomato Salad, and this time I’m giving you a recipe for feta apple salad.
I think the salad is perfect for summer and fall as well. Lots of seasonal apples are in store right now and they can be perfectly used for this salad.
How Can I Make Salad Taste Better At Home?
When you eat out the salad’s always taste so much better than they do at home. The reason for this? it’s all in the dressing!
When making the salad, it is important to pick a variety of greens that will add texture and flavor. Then add herbs and dressing for the finishing touch.
It took me probably 10 minutes to make this entire salad including the home-made dressing, so it certainly isn’t difficult and will make all the difference to the taste.
Just prepare all the ingredients and toss them together.
The dressing takes only 4 ingredients so is incredibly easy to make. It is a combination of lemon, oregano, olive oil and salt and pepper. It pairs very well with this feta apple salad.
The end result makes this feta apple salad perfect for a light lunch or as side dish for dinner. I had it just today for lunch and I know that I will be making more salads with apples. They taste great together.
You can choose sweet or sour apple. Any apple will be perfect.
Why Do Restaurants Salad Taste So Good?
So you have the ingredients and you have the dressing, but it still doesn’t taste quite the same as it does when eating out?
It’s all in the way you put the salad together.
Pre-tossing the salad ensures that the dressing perfectly coats and seasons the greens. Instead of drizzling the dressing over the top of your salad, toss it all together. This will coat your entire salad and flavor it perfectly.
