Brie Green Apple Salad

Whenever I think about this salad, I hear the words, “greens, greens, greens,” set to the tune of Destiny’s Child’s “Bills, Bills, Bills.”

ANYWAY. The song and the salad share some things in common. They’re both about empowerment and feeling good about your decisions. I made this salad because I had leftover microgreens and Brie. As it turns out, it made me feel really good after I ate it. The Brie is heavy but the rest of the salad is light. I love the way the creamy Brie tastes with the tart apples and cranberries. The salad, like the song, has attitude.

You can sub in pecans for walnuts, but I’d recommend using walnuts in the salad. They add some crunch and they taste good with the apple and Brie. Picture oven-baked Brie with honey, green apples and walnuts, and you’ll land somewhere close to this salad.

Here’s the aforementioned song, just in case you’ve forgotten it. And here’s another song that’s good for mornings when you need some motivation.

Brie Green Apple Salad (from me, to you)
