So now I'm "obsessed" with cooking - that is: I can't stop watching the Food Network and every other cooking show in different channels.
It's really cool to try new flavors and experiment in the kitchen. They only problem: having to wash so many pots and pans and spoons and forks. However, I'm trying to be more creative with what I cook, though I can rival my sister. She's amazing.
This salad, I didn't see it on TV, actually a friend ordered one during lunch one afternoon and thought, hmmm I can totally make that. So a few days later, after buying the ingredients, I did! And it was delicious, the crunchiness of the celery and the sweetness of the raisins... Plus the colors are so pretty!
Raisins, 2 green apples, 4 celery sticks and lettuce. You can also add walnuts!
Chop the celery, break (don't cut) the lettuce into small pieces, then cut the apples. Mix everything and add as many raisins as you want, the walnuts and a little pepper. Serve and eat right away otherwise the apple will start to turn brown. (To prevent this you can add lemon to the apples).
Makes three servings.
I think there's a specific dressing for this salad with mayonnaise, but I opted for a honey mustard one. Just mix some a tablespoon of honey with a teaspoon of mustard.
