I just came up with a new delicious salad for the holiday season. Frisee Salad with Marcona Almonds, Beets, and Blue Cheese. Frisee lettuce and butter lettuce serve as the base, and then red beets, a sliced honey crisp apple, blue cheese, and Marcona almonds are added and then drizzled it with a maple-balsamic dressing. This salad is delicious, and it's packed with flavor and textures. It sparkles, which makes it perfect for the season.
