Back with a Healthy Bang! - Apple Pecan Salad

Hello friends.......

yeah yeah I know... Its been a long long time. I was completely tied up in so many things that I didnt have any time to blog or say a simple Hi to all my lovely blogger friends. To firstly I would like to enquire about all my pretty friends out there. Hope u all r doing good. My regards to all of u.

Coming to me, I had been to india and came back on friday 28th Nov. Enjoyed my trip. Had loads of fun and roamed and shopped a lot. Enjoyed eating the chatpata road side food. Yummm! India has not changed a bit when it comes to food. They say people in india have become very conscious about their health and about status and this and that blah blah.... but u can still see the roadside stalls surrounded with so many foodies..some stopping by in their posh cars....ahem ahem....thats the power of tasty food. Isn't it guys?

Coming to the Plagarism of my site, things r cool now. I dunno how but that site has been stopped and I am happy and bless the person who made it happen. So after all the munching and jumping around in India, I decided that I go on strict diet when I come back. So here I am with a healthy Salad recipe which I enjoyed making as well eating.

Apple Pecan Salad. If u dont like pecan u can substitute it with Walnuts or toasted almonds.:)

Ingredients :

Spring mix salad leaves - 1 pack

Chinese cabbage - 1 cup (optional) you can even use regular cabbage.

Red apple - 1

Toasted pecans - 1/2 cup

Lemon juice - 2 tsp

Olive oil - 1 tsp

Salt to taste

Toasted sesame - 1 tsp (optional)

Pepper - a pinch

Method :

In a big salad bowl put in the salad spring mix. You can even add romaine lettuce, iceberg lettuce and other salad leaves to this individualy . I prefer to buy this shredded mix pack.

Add the toasted and halved pecans to this and mix well. Chop the apples into small cubes. Toss the apples too into the bowl Toss well, wrap with a cling wrap and refridgerate.

In a seperate small bowl add the the lemon juice, olive oil, toasted sesame, salt and pepper and mix well. Ur dressing is ready. When ur ready to serve, pour this dressing over ur salad and mix gently. Your salad is ready to be eaten. Sweet and tangy, healthy salad.

Enjoy as a side to your lunch.
