apple cucumber salad



I actually made this without the apples this time because we accidentally ate them as a snack.

4 servings as a side dish

I don’t bother to remove the seeds from the cucumber but do so if you like.

1 cucumber
2 apple (preferable tart apples)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 green onion, chopped

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon honey
4 tablespoons yoghurt
fresh dill


For the salad:
Cut cucumber and apples into fine slices or use your food processor or mandolin. Add to a bowl with the lemon juice, green onion and toss well.
For the salad dressing;
Add the remaining ingredients into a small bowl and stir until combined.
Pour over the salad and stir well.
You can eat this salad right away but it tastes even better after it sats around for two hours in the refrigerator. Makes a great lunchbox salad even the next day.

some notes
Crystallized honey is difficult to stir, heat it in your microwave oven just for a few seconds to liquify. A pot of hot water does the same job.
