Ingredients

6 tablespoons baby arugula
2 tablespoons vinegar (recommendation: Bliss 9)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons pistachios, toasted
1 thin slice sheep's milk cheese (recommendation: St. Agur)
3 thin slices of green apple halves
pinch of black lava salt

Directions

1. Cut a long thin slice of sheep's milk cheese into a rectangle approximately 2 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches long. Wrap the cheese into a loop and press the ends together just enough so it holds its shape.

2. In a mixing bowl place the arugula, olive oil and vinegar together, and toss until coated evenly.

3. Season with black salt.

4. Gently place greens into the cheese cylinder in the center of a plate.

5. Stack the apple slices on top of each other. Cut the slices in half and fan each stack on opposite sides of the salad.

6. Drizzle with olive oil and toasted pistachios.
