Now I, (like most people) was not a very big fan of salads in the younger days of yore. We even called it Ghas Phoos. (Those who know, will know!). But now that’s I’ve grown older wiser, I gladly fill up my plate with the goodies. I’ve even been known to order just salad for lunch! (Ha ha ha … really got you on that one din’t I??) Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is … some salads do taste awesome! And though you probably won’t bypass a meal to eat just one, it won’t hurt to pile some on your plate. Besides this is almost a cheat salad – it has more fruit than the leafy stuff!
Prep time: 10 mins
What you need:
1 cup of seedless Grapes (flame/ globe)
1 Green Apple, cut into wedges
1 big bunch of Mixed Lettuce Leaves
2 Tbsp Mayonnaise
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
½ tsp of mixed dried herbs (oregano, rosemary, thyme)
Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper to taste
What to Do:
Wash and dry lettuce leaves. (I have a salad spinner *smug*). Now combine the mayo, lemon juice and herbs in a small glass bottle. Shake well (with the lid on) to combine. You can also substitute sour cream for mayo. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
Note: Always add the dressing on just before serving a salad. This will ensure the leaves are not limp and soggy but fresh and crunchy.
