Hearts of Romaine Salad With Apple, Red Onion, and Cider Vinaigrette.

For an especially elegant presentation, this salad can be arranged on individual plates instead of one large platter. When trimming the base of the romaine hearts, be sure to leave a small part of each base attached to hold the leaves together.
