I believe this is pretty close to the salad they serve at Lurcat- it is currently back on the menu in Minneapolis.


  • 5 oz. Manchego, cut in matchsticks
  • 5 large apples, skin on, cut in matchsticks
  • 3 Tbsp. chives, chopped
  • 6 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/3 cup minced shallots
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp. grated lemon zest
  • salt & pepper to taste


Mix manchego, apples and chives in bowl.

For dressing put all ingredients in food processor and blend.

Pour dressing over ingredients in bowl and gently toss. This is best if you allow the salad to sit in fridge for a while to let the flavors set.
