Apple & Lettuce Salad

Yesterday I got a very unique demand from my sister; she wanted to have something healthy yet tasty. She is a health freak and avoids junk food and thus, I had to surrender to her demand. I scanned my fridge and thought what could be better than a salad for her. So there it was an Apple & Lettuce salad, because apple contains no fat, sodium or cholesterol and is a good source of fiber. Needless to say my sister relished this healthy and tasty salad.

Salad
Here is how I prepared it.

Following preparation will serve 2.

Ingredients –
2 large apples diced in cubes
1 cup iceberg lettuce chopped in cubes
3 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon mixed herbs

Method –
Mix apple, sugar, salt, lemon zest, lemon juice, mixed herbs and mayonnaise in a bowl and refrigerate for 5 minutes. Add lettuce only when you have to serve or else it will lose its crunch. Mix all the ingredients well and check the seasoning, add salt and sugar if required as per your taste. Sprinkle a pinch of mixed herbs on top and serve cold with nacho chips or tortilla.

You can also serve this salad with barbeque or kebabs. Hope you enjoyed reading this recipe. I am looking forward to hear from you soon, till then happy cooking.
