Some people love salads for the flavor or the health benefits. We agree on both counts, and there's an extra element to love about this salad in particular: the crunch. There's lettuce, of course, but also toasted walnuts and the crowning achievement of satisfying chomps, “everything bagel” croutons that you make yourself. We contrast the crunch with a little Fuji apple and onion, both made soft and delicious on the grill.
