Apple, Green Bean and Turkey Salad with Goat Cheese Dressing

Guys, we got mail!!! As you guys know, we’re big fans of experimenting with seasonal produce and our friends from Starr Ranch Growers sent us a lovely box of Juici apples — first time learning about them too. Similar in flavor to Honeycrisps, which is actually one of our favorite varieties, Juici apples have thinner skin, amazing crunch and a perfectly balanced taste between sweet and tart. And they are exclusively grown by Starr Ranch Growers. 

We decided to use them in one of our favorite salads: An APPLE, GREEN BEAN AND TURKEY SALAD WITH GOAT CHEESE DRESSING. This is the perfect post-Thanksgiving recipe for that leftover turkey. Or you can make it completely vegetarian, if you wish. Juici apples really add a nice crunch and touch of sweetness to this salad that makes every bite so satisfying.

Here’s how you make it!
