Salad with Apple Sauce
à la Marcel
We are used to make salads with salad dressing, such as one made of mayonnaise or of oil and vinegar, that is served on salad. We also use 1000-Island dressing, Morning-Glory and other fancy stuff. They all contain a lot of calories, additives, colors and so on. Why don't we change this bad habit of using salad dressings from the supermarket and instead make our own dressings at home? If you do not like my 'Apple Sauce dressing' then at least make your homemade salad dressings! Use a good vinegar or lemon juice, spices, chilies, olive oil (or any polyunsaturated oil), garlic, onion, etc.
Make a new salad dressing
Peel 3 apples, remove the center and cut apples into quarters. Mince the apples in a food processor or blender until finely puréed. Add 1 soupspoon of honey. Also add the juice of one lemon. If you like it hot then add some spices - such as pepper, chilies, fresh ginger (finely shredded) or even one or two garlic cloves (crushed). You might also add a soupspoon of olive oil or a teaspoon of sesame oil. In case you love pineapples you can add two finely cut slices of pineapple.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and then refrigerate sauce immediately in a refrigerator until very cold.
Prepare a salad with carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, radish, finely shredded potatoes, celery, red beet, cabbage, endive and onion rings, anything you like.
I recommend: lettuce, finely shredded carrots, finely shredded cabbage, radish and endive.
Pour your 'Apple Sauce à la Marcel' on your salad.
Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Decorate your salad with parsley, chives, olives and cottage cheese.
Have a good day!
