Ingredients
  

  • 2 Hearts of Romaine Lettuce
  • 1 cup watercress
  • 1 Scallion sliced thin
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 1 green apple
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped

Ingredients for the salad dressing

  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar white or red balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

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.

Notes

  • 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. 
  • Wash and slice the cucumber
  • Wash and cut the apple
  • Add other ingredients and gently toss
  • Drizzle the salad dressing over the other ingredients and gently toss when ready to serve. 
  • Serve immediately.
