Valentine Apple-Mint Salad

By Avera

Ingredients
  • Makes 8 servings

  • 6 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 2 Large RED apples (1 lb. total)

  • 1/3 cup orange juice

  • 2 tablespoons salad oil

  • 1/3 cup finely slivered fresh mint leaves

  • Salt

  • 8 butter lettuce leaves, rinsed and crisped

  • Fresh mint sprigs

Directions
  1. In a 4- to 5-quart bowl, mix lemon juice with 1 quart water. Rinse apples, cut in half, and core; thinly slice lengthwise, then cut slices into matchstick-size slivers. As apples are cut, immerse in lemon water.

  2. Drain apples thoroughly in a colander; return to bowl. Add orange juice and oil, and mix gently.

  3. Just before serving, add mint leaves. Mix gently and add salt to taste. Place a lettuce leaf on each of 8 salad plates. Spoon apple salad equally onto lettuce leaves; garnish with mint sprigs.

This sounds so refreshing! We have a little herb garden on our counter. I do have mint in it too. I use the mint in my decaf tea everyday, so now I can make this and have another use for it.
Yum!!!…Debe
