Pairing smoked trout with green apples creates a terrific sweet-tart-smoky combination. A little mayonnaise in the dressing gives the salad a lovely creaminess.

  1. 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  2. 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  3. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  4. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 1 head of frisée, torn into bite-size pieces (3 cups)
  6. 1/2 pound skinless smoked trout fillets, flaked and pin bones removed
  7. 3 ounces Manchego cheese, coarsely shredded (about 1 cup)
  8. 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and cut into 1/8-inch-thick matchsticks
  9. 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
  10. 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  1. In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the cider vinegar and olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the frisée with the trout, Manchego, apple, parsley and red onion. Add the dressing and toss to coat. Transfer the salad to plates and serve.
