Simple Refreshing Salad! This is a really easy and quick recipe for making a side salad, and the combination of the 3 simple salad ingredients I use, namely cucumber, tomato and Granny Smith apples is delightful! The crunch from the apple and cucumber and the burst of juicy tomato, all mixed with a slight sharpness of taste from the apple is delicious! It is lovely after it has chilled in the fridge, however, if your salad ingredients are already chilled then this can be served immediately!
I often make this because it’s simple, I usually always have these ingredients handy and it just goes great with so many things.
For the dressing, I’ve made it light, so I used fat free plain yogurt, you can of course use mayonnaise, if you want to.
Delicious with BBQ’s, picnics or indeed anything!
1/2 a cucumber, chopped in to cubes
2 Medium tomatoes, cubed
2 Granny Smith Apples, cored, and cubed. (leave the skin on for a delicious crunch)
2 Tablespoons Fat Free Plain Yogurt. (You can also use lemon or lime flavored yogurt)
Squeeze of lemon Juice
Salt & Pepper to your taste.
1. Add all tomato, cucumber and apple to your serving bowl. Add the yogurt and squeeze of lemon juice.
2. Stir gently to coat the salad with the yogurt and add a little salt and pepper. Taste it and see if you would like to add more lemon juice, salt, pepper to your taste.
3. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
