Satchel’s Salad


Satchel’s famous salad recreated! Hope you enjoy.

The salad is more about how it is assembled then the exact ratios, if you mix all together, all the nuts will fall to the bottom and it will be sorta soggy and mushy.

This recipe makes alot, so I would halve it or even quarter it?


1 granny smith apple, diced
1/4-1/2 cup carrots
1/8 red onion, minced
2 tomatoes, seeded and blotted of excess moisture, diced
2-3 cups mixed greens (spring mix)
1/4 cucumber peeled, seeded, and diced (optional)
1/8 cup pecans, chopped

1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup salted, roasted sunflower seeds

1/4-1/2 cup Pecorino Romano, grated on finest setting possible


1/4 cup balsamic
1/2 cup olive oil (more if needed – i like it pretty vinegar-y)
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp honey

For the Salad:

  1. Mix apple, carrot, onion, tomato, mixed greens, cucumber, and pecans in a bowl, lightly tossing.
  2. Top with almonds and sunflower seeds on top.
  3. Top with the cheese.

For the Vinaigrette:

  1. Whisk all together until all the ingredients combine well into a smooth dressing.
  2. Drizzle dressing over the top.

  1. Oh. My. God.

    I am totally making this this weekend. Any particular type of mustard/honey recommended?? Can I use Grapeseed oil instead of Olive?

    • I use Maille, its a french mustard that they carry in a lot of supermarkets similar to Grey Poupon, but I’ve also used the bright yellow bottle in a pinch and honestly, was completely fine.

      Hmm honey wise I have some orange blossum honey but that too is just a kind from the supermarket, I’ve used the little honey bears and that was just as yummy!

      I often use half grapeseed oil and half olive oil cause I like a bit of the olive oil flavor but def just grapeseed is fine too.

      Hope you enjoy 🙂
