Apple Romaine Salad

2 shredded romaine hearts
1 diced red apple
1/4 C diced red onion
2 Tbs apple juice 
1 dash ginger
1 dash cinnamon
freshly ground black pepper

After dicing the onion soak it in ice water for about 20 minutes.  Combine apple juice and spices.  Toss with other ingredients.

Tip: To make sure you get the crisp, sweet tasting red onion this recipe calls for, avoid onions that are growing thick sprouts. A fresh red onion should feel firm and have a fairly neutral odor before cutting.
