If you’ve got some pungent bleu cheese or crumbly aged goat cheese on hand, toss some onto these welcoming winter salads. The richness of a nut oil in the dressing rounds out the toasty flavor of the dish. Like any good Waldorf, this one features the best of winter apples—dressed up with a delicate walnut oil vinaigrette.

Instructions

  1. Beat all dressing ingredients together with a fork until well blended; set aside.

  2. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, chicken 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink in center. Remove from skillet.

  3. Add celery and apple to skillet; cook and stir about 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Meanwhile, arrange salad greens and radicchio on dinner plates. Top with the warm chicken, apples, and celery. Sprinkle with walnuts and dried fruit; drizzle with dressing.
