Summer Apple Carrot and Walnut Salad

June 27, 2015Sew White

My Summer Apple Carrot and Walnut Salad is a flavoursome and fresh salad perfect for parties and BBQs but also works really well in lunch boxes.

 

This is a fabulous salad. It’s fresh, crunchy, juicy and perfect for a warm evening. Plus it’s so easy to make and it will wow your friends and family. I love the addition of fruit in salads and apple has to be my favourite.

I love apple and carrot in salads during the summer. There is something delicious about adding fruit to a savoury salad. Walnuts are also a delicious and add that super earthiness flavour. I love how versatile this recipe is. It goes so well with other dishes and tastes great in lunch boxes too.

Ingredients

  • 200g mixed salad a mix of crunchy and soft leaves work well
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1 Royal Gala apple
  • 50g walnuts
  • 50g baby tomatoes
  • Lemon juice

Salad Dressing

  • 60ml olive oil
  • 20ml balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • half a teaspoon of mild/medium mustard

Instructions

  1. On a large plate sprinkle out the mixed salad.
  2. Chop up the tomatoes and pepper. Add to the salad.

  3. Using a peeler, peel the carrot and keep peeling all the way through to make lovely strips.

  4. Cut the apple and remove the core. Thinly slice the apple. I used the mandoline to get them beautifully thin. Sprinkle with lemon juice to stop it browning. (The lemon juice on the apple works incredibly well with the salad dressing below.)

  5. Add the apple to the salad.

  6. Chop up the walnuts and sprinkle them over the salad.

Salad Dressing

  1. Put all the ingredients in the bottle and give it a good shake.

  2. Have a little taste to see if’s right for you. I like a more vinegary dressing so I usually add a splash more of vinegar.

  3. Dress the salad and serve straight away. If you have any left over it will last in the fridge for a few days.

I love the colours of this salad. Green and ruby leaves with bright orange carrot and peppers and soft cream apple with red skin. Not to forget the brown walnuts too.

    I always have trouble in the summer with what to have for lunch, a salad is the easy option but sometimes it becomes a little samey. I love the sound of this salad (minus the pepper)5 stars
