    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    This salad is so refreshing and wonderful. The fruit really mix well with the Lemon Verbena Oil! The Lemon Verbena Oil makes about 1/2 a cup and can be refrigerated for 1 week. This spectacular recipe is by Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The Lemon Verbena Oil can also be Drizzled over steamed vegetables or sautéed fish or chicken or use it to make a fragrant vinaigrette. Food & Wine. WINE: The tart and sweet flavors of this salad find a good match in a bright German Riesling that echoes the apple and lemon. Try the inexpensive 1999 Piesporter Michelsberg Riesling Kabinett or the 1999 "Dr. L" Dr. Loosen Riesling.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 granny smith apples, quartered lengthwise, cored and thinly sliced crosswise (about 1 pound)
    • 1 small sweet onion, such as Vidalia, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
    • 1 piece ginger, about 3 inches, peeled and cut into 1/8-by-2-inch matchsticks
    • 1/2 cup fresh coconut, finely grated (I used frozen)
    • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons basil, finely shredded
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper

    Lemon Verbena Oil

    • 1 cup lemon verbena leaves (about 3 ounces) or 2 stalks fresh lemongrass, tender inner white bulbs only, crushed
    • 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
    • 1 pinch salt

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a blender, combine the lemon verbena with the oil and blend for 2 minutes. Pour the oil into a jar and let stand for 1 hour, then strain, pressing on the solids to extract as much oil as possible. Season with the salt.
    2. 2
      Toss the apples with the onion, ginger, coconut, lemon juice and basil. Season with salt and pepper. Add 3 tablespoons of Lemon Verbena Oil and toss; serve.

      I think I made this right after it was first posted, or anyway it was early fall. I was excited to finally have a chance to use my lemon verbena. Unfortunately, I forgot to review it at that time, but I remember the unique blend of flavors was extraordinary.

      Yummy. A great combination of flavors. The walla walla’s I used were perfect for this.
