This is another recipe adapted from a restaurant – Cafe Lurcat in Naples, Florida. It is only four ingredients but it was a crowd pleaser at the tasting!
- 4 med. Granny Smith apples
- A bit of lemon juice
- 4 ounces Manchego cheese
- 8 chives (enough for 4 tablespoons chopped)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil – the best you can find
- 2 pinches kosher salt
Cut the apples into matchsticks. We have a mandoline that makes this job a piece of cake. Toss into ice water with a bit of lemon juice so the apples don’t start turning brown. Cut the cheese into matchsticks. Thinly slice the chives. Toss all ingredients with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 2 pinches kosher salt. Serve immediately.
Served with Van Ruiten Sauvignon Blanc.
