My kids love this yummy, fresh salad, with it's crunchy vegetables and the sweetness of the green apple. Best made just before serving, or the mushrooms will start to get soggy, and the apple will turn brown. My kids prefer it without dressing, but you could use a vinegarette, or a lemon yoghurt dressing if you prefer. This recipe serves 2 as a side dish.


  1. Cut the carrot and cucumber in half, lengthways.
  2. thinly slice all vegetables and apple.
  3. Toss to combine, and serve as a light lunch, or as a side.

Made this when my vegetarian son & DIL were here for lunch so more or less multiplied the recipe by 4, using a large Granny Smith apple, 6 button mushrooms, a 6" cucumber & a good size carrot! Really enjoy preparing a recipe that includes raw mushrooms, & this one makes for a very tasty salad! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]

I made the full amount and had for lunch with some smoked salmon and ate the rest of the apple as a snack, Loved the fresh crunchy tastes of the vegies with the slight softness of the mushrooms and the sweetness of the apples, a nice light lunch on a warm day for this time of year. Thank you Sara 76, made for Please Review My Recipes.
