Sage Fruit sponsored this recipe for Apple Pecan Salad.

A perfect salad combines great flavors, textures, and colors. Apple Pecan Salad checks all three of these boxes.

Sage Fruit Gala and Granny Smith apples are combined with baby greens, tomatoes, cabbage, pecans, and blue cheese and drizzled with a Lemon Garlic dressing. It’s bursting with color and is full of flavor and crunchy texture.

Gala and Granny Smith apples are well suited to each other. Gala apples are crisp, juicy, and very sweet while Granny Smith apples are tart.

Their distinct flavors balance one another out and provide this salad with a little bit of sweetness and a little bit of tartness. Both Gala and Granny Smith apples can be found year-round in the produce department at your neighborhood grocery store.
