Apple Walnut Salad

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by BecR2400

A refreshing apple and nut salad, with the addition of fresh mint! I use a mixture of crisp apples including galas and pink ladies--- I don't peel them, but you may peel your apples if you wish. Please feel free to adjust the amount of honey to suit your taste. Note: Best made with a fresh light tasting mint such as spearmint or lemon-mint; cook time is chill time.

A very fresh tasting salad! I made this with Braeburn apples and as the recipe did not indicate whether to peel them or not, I left the peel on them for colour and texture. I served the salad on a bed of freshly picked Mesclun salad leaves and we ate this with some French bread and cheese for a light lunch. I quite liked the sweetness of the honey, but Malcolm thought it was too sweet, and gave it a 4; HOWEVER! As the chief cook and bottle washer I have the casting vote and therefore gave it 5!! I will cut back on the honey next time though - I thought the combination of the apples, nuts and mint was wonderful enough without the extra sweetness of the honey! (IMHO!!) A lovely light salad which I will make again. Made for 5 a day in the photo's forum, merci Becky! FT:-)
