All ingredients can be adjusted to suit taste. Add in some chopped peeled cucumber if desired. If you are not a ginger lover then omit the fresh ginger. Plan ahead this salad needs to chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
If you love Greek salads you will love this, it's an absolute must made with garden ripe tomatoes! I use the dressing from my recipe#66596 but you may use your own favorite dressing, the cucumber is only optional I like to add some in, plan ahead this salad must be chilled at least 3 hours before serving or up to 6 hours. Serve this salad with crusty bread on the side to dip into the juice, you may also serve the tomatoes with juice on a bed of lettuce.
I adore this salad! For a dinner party, this could be assembled early in the day and drizzle the dressing on just before serving. Toss the avocado and apples in a little lemon juice to prevent oxidation.
This is a nice, simple salad that requires a minimum of effort and no actual cooking...always nice on hot summer days. As with most vegetable salads, amounts are approximate (I often trade the tomatoes for carrots or peas).
I love when I get a salad at a restaurant that is garnished with Hearts of Palm. I often see the cans in the grocery store and am tempted to grab one, but never do for fear that I wont use it. This is a typical salad, side dish or appetizer from Central America that uses this wonderful ingredient. Since the absorbency of the hearts of palm varies from batch to batch you may need more or less of the olive oil. If making as a salad spoon on top a bed of mixed greens.
