Steps

  1. Whisk mustard, vinegar, lemon juice and maple syrup together in a bowl. Add oil in a thin stream while whisking until the texture is creamy. Add salt and pepper. Set aside.

  2. Cook pasta in a pot of salted boiling water, following instructions on the package. Drain and add a little oil. Set aside to cool.

  3. Combine pasta with other ingredients in a big bowl. Add dressing and correct seasoning.

Recommendations

We used Spartan apples because they don’t get brown too quickly when exposed to the air. They’ll still look (and taste) luscious for several hours!
