Prepare the dressing
In a small bowl or a jar, add the juice of lemon, balsamic vinegar, oil, crushed garlic, a pinch of salt, and black pepper. Shake or stir vigorously until well combined.
Prepare the salad
Wash the greens and herbs and dry well. A towel paper is perfect for drying herbs. For the romaine lettuce and watercress, a salad spinner is perfect. Add the greens to a large bowl.
Wash the cucumber. Use a vegetable peeler to peel the cucumber. You can either remove the seedy core with a spoon or leave it. Add it to the salad.
Wash the apple and either slice it thin or in chunks. Add it to the salad.
Toss gently to mix all the ingredients. Drizzle the dressing over the salad when ready to serve.
Buy everything fresh as the salad will be tastier and fresher.
Thoroughly wash the vegetables and dry them well.
When ready to serve the salad, drizzle the dressing and toss gently. Add the appropriate amount of dressing; do not over-drench the salad in dressing. The salad will not be tasty to the eyes and the palate.
Don't forget to season the dressing. Salt and pepper are usually the common ingredients; garlic is a fragrant vegetable that adds beautiful flavors to salad dressing.
Balance out the acidity of the dressing with honey, agave, or maple syrup.
