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:-)

French Tart July 04, 2009

4 1/4 stars. I used a mixture of Gala and crisp Mackintosh apples. The toasted walnuts which I did in a dry frying pan are very good in this. I used freshly squeezed lemon juice and Helmans olive oil mayonnaise to be soy free. I agree with another review that it was too sweet. I suggest less honey of which I used local honey to be healthier. I wont make this again.
