How did two such different foods ever find each other? Sweet and crunchy Granny Smiths mix it up with creamy bites of Tillamook Special Reserve Extra Sharp Cheddar. Add spiced pecans and it’s no longer a salad. It’s an adventure.

“I recently learned about the joy of combining apples and cheddar. This simple salad has some really amazing flavors and textures. You will have extra vinaigrette and pecans to use again and again.” – Hosea Rosenberg of Blackbelly Catering
