Apple Yogurt Salad
When Louise posted her challenge earlier this month -- to try out a recipe from a cookbook you own that corresponds with one of the October food holidays she spotlighted on her blog -- I knew I had to give it a go.
We've got an apple tree
So just in under the October wire, here is my apple contribution. Not the grated apple pie I made, not the baked apples with custard sauce, not the applesauce or apple and cheese platters -- though they were all yummy. But the recipe I'd like to share for Louise's cookbook party is this humble apple yogurt salad. It's easy, tasty, and healthy, passing my test for a recipe that's a keepr.
Taken from this book, one in my collection that I really ought to use more, this delightful little dish serves 6, at about 100 calories apiece.
APPLE YOGURT SALAD
1/4 c. walnuts, chopped
2/3 c. plain yogurt
1 T. lemon juice
1/4 t. ground cinnamon
1 T. honey
2 large apples, peeled and thinly sliced
Toast the walnuts at 350 degrees until lightly browned -- 5 minutes or so. Stir together yogurt, lemon juice, cinnamon, and honey. Toss sliced apples with yogurt mixture and serve on lettuce leaves. Sprinkle with walnuts.
