A note about serious food allergies

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.
