On this week's Gourmet Minutes with Mallory, Harrah's chef Jason Ison shows Mike how to make a winter salad.

Ingredients:

Maple Dressing

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons Champagne vinegar or other white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil


Salad

  • 1 5-ounce bag mixed baby greens (about 10 cups lightly packed)
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, cut into matchstick-size strips
  • 1/2 cup dried tart cherries
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

Directions:

For dressing:
Whisk mayonnaise, maple syrup, vinegar, and sugar in medium bowl to blend. Gradually whisk in oil until mixture thickens slightly. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Dressing can be prepared 3 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Re-whisk before using.)

For salad:
Toss greens, apples, cherries, and 1/4 cup walnuts in large bowl to combine. Toss with enough dressing to coat. Divide salad equally among plates. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup walnuts and serve.
