Apple And Cucumber Salad


Soups (corn soup, chicken vegetable soup and turmeric mushroom soup) as well as salads are comfort food. Fruity vegetable salad is also an absolute nutritious snack or a meal by itself to cleanse our system. This crunchy munchy salad with apple, cucumber, lettuce leaves and blackcurrants in a simple dressing as said is nice just like that or as a side with rice, rasamsambar or fried rice


Ingredients
2 apples - remove seeds and cubed into medium size pieces
1 (about 100g) cucumber - remove seeds and cubes into medium size pieces
100g lettuce leaves- shredded into pieces
50g dried black currant
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp brown sugar
salt to taste

Method:
Soak cubed apples, cucumber and lettuce leaves in a bowl with ice cubes for about 10 mins to sustain and retain crunchiness.  
Drain off water completely.
Into a mixing bowl, add oil, lemon juice, sugar and salt.
Whisk for a couple of minutes, add greens and blackcurrant.
Toss all together and that's it.
