This apple manchego salad is a stunner! Matchsticks of apple and cheese tossed with olive oil make for an unexpected sweet and savory apple salad recipe.


  • 4 firm tart apples (Jonathon, honey crisp or Granny Smith)
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 4 ounces Manchego cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pinches kosher salt


  1. Slice the apples into matchsticks (slice them into slices, then lay the slice down and cut into thin long rectangles). Toss the apples with a bit of fresh lemon juice.
  2. Cut the cheese into matchsticks.
  3. Thinly slice the chives.
  4. Toss all ingredients with the olive oil and kosher salt. Serve immediately.
