What better way to stay refreshed than with a crunchy bit of cool. And that’s exactly what this salad was. I’d hoped for a bit of leftovers, but those two hungry bears arriving for dinner had feasted most feverishly, and all that I have to remember this bit of history is the veggie & fruit photo-op’s.
Wait here, while I stir things up…
(Stone ground mustard, olive oil, rice vinegar, a bit of lemon with a bit of salt and pepper.)
Crunch, crunch, crunch…crunch…I lost the photo of the apples, or more precisely, I ditched it. Twas not a pretty post-op. Mixed up, it wins, but naked, well, it was just ugly. 😉
(The original recipe didn’t call for any jalapeno’s, but I’m a rebel, living for a thrill ride down the back alley of veggie-ness, messing things up with a bit-o-smoke.) 😉
Some folks just have big-time Mojo. They know how to toss the unexpected into the mix, knowing full well that the result will exceed all expectations. Dara, the sweet soul behind, Generation Y Foodie, ups the ante with more than a few tasty ideas. I’m so happy I stumbled upon her food blog. I’ll be perusing her offerings for future feasts.

I never would have thought to put apple, cucumber and radishes in a bowl together, but now I’m sad I waited so long to do so. I wish I’d thought to put jalapenos in as well!
This salad was so cool, refreshing, and delicious. I will definitely make this again in the near future.
I’m glad I invested in the new jar of stone ground mustard. I stood in front of the mustard aisle for a few seconds trying to decide it whatever mustard I already had in my fridge would suffice, but decided to splurge and purchase what the recipe called for. Definitely worth it!
