Cucumber Salad With Apple Vinaigrette

Recommended Posts

I promised myself I would try some new recipes now that slow summer days are here. Especially salads. Serve this one with a tuna sandwich and lemonade for a light lunch on a hot day.

Cucumber Salad with Apple Vinagrette.

Serves 4

1/2 a head of lettuce(I used red leaf)

2 asian cucumbers or an english cucumber(amount to your liking), cut in about 1 inch lengths and quartered into sticks

1 stalk of celery, thinly sliced on a mandoline


Combine the following and have ready and waiting when you grate the apple.

2 tsp. lemon juice

2 Tb. vinegar(I chose rice vinegar because it is in between white and apple cider in terms of sweetness)

1/3 tsp. salt

dash pepper

3 Tb. olive oil

Grate peeled apple(I chose Golden Delicious) on the finest side of the grater, as for daikon radish or ginger so that it is almost a puree, until you have 4Tb. Add immediately to the vinagrette.

I'm not a big fan of celery but I recommend not omitting it, it adds an important flavor note.
