  • 1 cup polenta
  • 3 cups water

  • 2 cups mixed greens (such as spinach, arugula, or kale)
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled (optional)

  1. Prepare the Polenta:
    • In a medium saucepan, bring 3 cups of water to a boil.

    • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
    • Add the thinly sliced apples and sauté until they start to soften, about 3-4 minutes.
    • Drizzle honey over the apples and continue to cook until they are caramelized and tender. Remove from heat.
  3. Prepare the Greens:
    • In the same skillet or a separate one, wilt the mixed greens for 1-2 minutes until they are just wilted but still vibrant.
  4. Assemble the Platter:
    • Spoon a generous portion of polenta onto each serving plate.
    • Top with melted apples and wilted greens.
    • Optional: Sprinkle crumbled feta cheese and chopped walnuts over the top for added texture and flavor.
