Apple Chedder Salad thing (as close as I could get it to Eccolo's)
1 Pink Lady Apple
1/2 cup cubed or crumbled Aged white cheddar (English style)
1/2 cup candied walnuts
Good olive oil, and balsamic with a little dijon mustard to emulsify (for the dressing)
So good and I will have it for lunch today again. There is enough here for a large entree salad or a salad to share.
Side note, my mother and I often when lunching end up ordering burgers. I can't quite place my figure on why, we love many foods and burgers always seem so...basic. No matter who nice a place it is, when it is just the two of us we always default to the burger. This of course makes us quite the critic, and the above mentioned burgers at the Balboa Cafe are some of our favorites. Eccolo's came with homemade bread and butter pickles, I, not being pickle person, could not tell you how they stacked up. For that you will have to go to my mom. I guess this is why we have my dad, for some reason his presence brakes the magic burger spell and we start ordering things like the duck confit salad when he is around.
