Preparation

Maple Caramelized Walnuts

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, bring the maple syrup and butter to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Add walnuts. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until the sugar crystallizes (becomes grainy) on the nuts. Remove from the heat.
  3. Immediately spoon on the baking sheet. With a spatula, quickly spread the nuts. Season lightly with salt. Let cool completely. Roughly crush with a knife.

Maple Dressing

  1. In a vinaigrette blender, shake all the ingredients until the dressing is creamy. Season with salt and pepper.

Salad

  1. In a bowl of cold water, let the onion soak for about 5 minutes to mellow out the flavour. Drain.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, apple, and onion. Add dressing to taste and toss well. Sprinkle with the walnuts and bacon.
