Warm Date and Maple Syrup Dressing
10 dates, pitted
3 Tbsp (45 ml) apple cider vinegar
½ C (125 ml) sunflower oil
pinch of salt
1 Tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup
1 Tbsp (15 ml) water
3 iceberg lettuce heads, cut in half
2 celery sticks, sliced into thin ribbons (use a vegetable peeler)
3 baby spring onions, cut into fine strips
3 Granny Smith apples, cut into rounds
100 g Parmesan cheese, cut into thin slices

For the dressing, place the dates and water in a small pot over a medium heat. Cook gently until the water has been absorbed and the dates have softened.
Place the softened dates and the rest of the dressing ingredients in a food processor. Process until smooth.
Combine all the salad ingredients together on a platter or in a serving dish.
Reheat the dressing gently until warm and then drizzle over the salad.
