Makes 4-6 Tiers.
This is a sophisticated tier with cored apple slices and a savory walnut spread. It is beautiful nestled in a bundle of decorative frisee lettuce, sunflower, or buckwheat sprouts.
Two firm apples
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 ½ cups walnuts, soaked 1-2 hours & drained
½ cup dry walnuts
3 tablespoons white miso
2 tablespoons organic extra-virgin olive oil
1-tablespoon apple cider vinegar
¼ cup chopped green onion
2 teaspoons shredded or finely minced ginger
½ cup chopped parsley
2 teaspoons lemon zest
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons ground coriander seeds
Sea salt to taste
1/3 cup pomegranate seeds for garnish (optional)
¼ cup chopped parsley for garnish
Quarter the apples & remove the core. Stack the apple slices in a bowl, squeeze the lemon, and sprinkle salt over them to prevent discoloration.
In a food processor, chop soaked walnuts and dry walnuts into a fine meal. Add miso, olive oil, vinegar, green onion, ginger, parsley, lemon zest, oregano, coriander, rosemary, and dill and blend into a smooth paste. Season with sea salt to taste.
To assemble, places apple slices next to each other & spread the walnut spread onto the apples. Garnish with the pomegranate seeds and chopped parsley.
