Green Apple Salad
This crunchy, refreshing salad makes a nice counterpoint to the rich foods normally served at breakfast or brunch.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 8
- 4 tart green apples, unpeeled
- 1 seedless cucumber, unpeeled
- 1 cup seedless green grapes
- ½ cup fennel bulb, finely diced
- ½ cup sultanas
- ½ cup plain yogurt
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon orange zest
- 2 teaspoons sugar or sugar substitute equivalent
Core and dice apples. Trim ends off cucumber and cut into small cubes.
In a bowl, toss together apples, cucumber, grapes, fennel, and sultanas.
Whisk together yogurt, mayonnaise, orange zest, and sugar.
Pour dressing over apple mixture and stir to coat.
Fennel looks a little like celery and can be used in place of celery in salads, stuffings, and other dishes. However, unlike somewhat bland celery, fennel has a pronounced licorice flavor. Most cooks are familiar with fennel seeds — which are available on any supermarket spice rack — but fresh fennel is worth trying.
