Apple, Cheese and Chive Salad

One of our favorite salads in the Twin Cities is from Cafe Lurcat.  It’s simple, easy, unique and oh so delicious.  This is always a hit whenever we serve it!  While I’m not sure of Lurcat’s exact recipe, our flavors are reminiscent of it.  Not your traditional “salad,” this is always a perfect addition to any menu.
