We can always count on salads when it comes to getting creative with food. A salad can consist of just about anything – chicken, steak, seafood – and apples add a sweet surprise that pairs well with blue cheese, goat cheese, or any other add-ins. While there is no single apple best for salads, we think there are a few varieties worth mentioning before your next salad venture!
For salads, you’ll want a nice crunchy apple that doesn’t brown too quickly when sliced or chopped. The best apples for adding to salads are: Honeycrisp, Fuji, Pink Lady, Piñata®, Jazz, Envy, and Empire. Each apple has its own unique flavor profile that will lend to pairing with dressings and cheese.
