Apple Walnut Salad

If you are bored of the classic salad recipes with greens, I suggest a delicious version of lettuce with apples and nuts. It is a combination that I tested with the whole team at the last Live Cooking session and it was very successful. I knew that such a salad recipe would be good, but to be honest I tasted it the first time and I was very pleasantly impressed. With such simple ingredients it is even effective and not trivial. And of course it is a colorful, beautiful and filling salad.

If you want to make a fasting salad , replace mozzarella with tofu cheese and you will definitely enjoy it as well as the original version.

Ingredients

Lettuce
1 piece
I think you can combine here any greens you like
Chopped walnuts
50 g
Apples
1 piece
Mozzarella
200 g
can be replaced with feta cheese or tofu in the fasting version
Raisins
50 g
or cranberries
Balsamic vinegar
50 ml
I put white balsamic vinegar - can be replaced with less apple cider vinegar
Extravirgin olive oil
50 ml
Salt
0.5 tsp
French mustard
1 tsp

Step by step

1

The lettuce is washed and dried well.

Break the pieces into a larger bowl.

2

Cut the apple into thin slices and add to the salad bowl.

3

Then add the mozzarella cheese - you can put such small balls or crush them a little, it will be more interesting salad.

4

Now put the chopped walnuts a little with a knife or blender.

Let me give you a little tip - the salad will be more flavorful if you cook the walnuts for 2-3 minutes on a dry pan - cool them a little and then cut.

5

Don't forget about raisins or cranberries.

6

We prepare the dressing:

- in a small bowl or jar with a lid - put the oil, vinegar and salt.

7

- Optionally you can add a little French mustard, but it is not mandatory

8

- mix all the ingredients well, use a fork or, if you have a jar - put the lid tightly and shake well until the sauce becomes like an emulsion.

9

Pour it over the salad ingredients.

10

Mix well with 2 forks, so the sauce will reach each ingredient.

More suitable for salt if needed.

11

Serve immediately and enjoy with great pleasure.

Good appetite!
