Apple, Cheddar, and Smoked Almond Salad

 

I love the combination of apples, cheddar cheese, and smoked almonds in this salad. Adding these ingredients to fresh spinach and topping it with a simple honey dijon dressing makes a delicious salad. This recipe couldn’t be easier to prepare and is always a crowd-pleaser.
