Apple and Pine Nuts Salad

This light, summer salad is can be a perfect side dish or an appetizer. I love to pair it with dishes like pastas or pies. A brilliant combination of fruit, nut, and vegetable, Apple and Pine Nuts Salad looks pretty, is healthy, and tastes delicious. Believe it or not, this is inspired from the Game of Thrones character Cersei Lannister – the Queen of Seven Kingdoms.Enjoy!
