  1. In a small glass or stainless-steel bowl, combine the sour cream, milk, chives, vinegar, ½ teaspoon of the salt, and ¼ teaspoon of the pepper. Mix well and set aside.

  2. In a food processor with a grating attachment, grate the potatoes, 1½ of the apples, and the onion. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the parsley, eggs, bread crumbs, and the remaining salt and pepper.

  3. In a large nonstick frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over moderate heat. Form the potato mixture into 12 pancakes about 2½-inches wide and ½-inch thick, using about ¼ cup of the mixture for each.

  4. Cook the pancakes in batches, turning once, for 3 to 4 minutes per side until crisp and golden.

  6. Cut the remaining apples into thin slices. Put them in a large bowl along with the greens. Add all but 2 tablespoons of the dressing and toss.

  7. Arrange the salad on plates and top with the pancakes. Drizzle the remaining dressing over the pancakes.

  8. Serve and enjoy.
