Cukeapple Salad and Raita

Cukeapple Salad and Raita
I was not in a mood for a big lunch, so I just made myself the most appetizing, satisfying apple cucumber salad.

1 apple
1 cucumber
a pinch of salt
a dash of lemon juice
and one twist of a pepper mill

Dice into bite sized cubes ( I peel my cukes – perfectly fine to leave on if you like it)
mix in the lemon juice (also prevents the apple from becoming brown)
salt and pepper

Top with a couple of fresh basil or mint leaves and enjoy

Variation 2
If you are a cheese lover, fresh mozarella is nice addition to this salad – Basil is still a good topping

Variation 3 & 4
Add 2 tablespoons of yogurt and make a raita out of it – Try a min topping of this one and remember to serve it chilled.
Make this a dessert by just dribbling some honey into it – quick fix for a sweet tooth :-)
