Green summer salad with walnuts, apple and cheese

This summer salad with walnuts will make a perfect quick lunch and, besides that, it is a very balanced in nutrients and healthy! It has proteins from the walnuts, fats from the cheeses and olive oil and lots of micro-nutrients and vitamins in the salad, apple and pear.

I use no salt for this salad, the combination between nuts, apple, hard cheese and salty cheese makes a perfect balance between sweet and salty. But the secret is indeed to use two types of cheese.

Here’s how simple and fast it is to make it!
