Deirdre's World Famous Salad

This salad recipe is a variation of a recipe a friend of ours shared with us last year.  You must be warned that if you do not like blue cheese or walnuts, this salad is not for you.  Here is what you need:

- 1/2 head radicchio, torn into bite size pieces
- 1/2 head Boston Bibb lettuce, torn into bite size pieces
- 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
- 1/4 cup roasted walnuts
- 1/2 Braeburn apple, peeled and sliced into bite size pieces.
- 2 ounces olive oil
- 3-4 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon honey

Whisk the oil, vinegar and honey until an emulsion is formed.  Place the radicchio, lettuce, blue cheese, walnuts and sliced apple into a bowl.  Pour the emulsion in the bowl and toss.  

Yield 4
