recipe is: simple scrumptious salad
1 large cucumber - skinned, seeded and cut into bite size cubes (try to remove ALL the seeds to keep it crunchy)
3 red apples - skinned, cored and cut into bite size pieces. toss immediately with 1 tbsp of lemon juice to stop it from going brown (use the crunchy type of apples, i used fuji apples)
2 handfuls cherry tomatoes
4 tbsp honey
juice of 1 large lemon
3 tbsp mayonnaise
mix the honey and the lemon juice, then add the mayo and stir to mix thoroughly. put the dressing and the salad in the fridge. just take them out of the fridge, add the needed amount of dressing to the salad, toss and serve immediately.
~ most types of fruits and vegetable can be used for this salad. it always best to use crunchier ingredients to give it more bite.
~ the ingredients in the dressing can be adjusted to taste. a less sweet and fruity alternative is:
mayo, tomato ketchup, mustard, tabasco sauce, grated garlic and salt.
