Apple Summer Salad on Diane's Vintage Zest!


Hello all Vintage Zest Readers!   Linda here from WITH A BLAST and I am happy to share one of my favorite salads with you today on Diane's blog.



Apple Summer Salad on Diane's Vintage Zest!


Living in sunny South-Africa we have great weather just about year round - with the exception of a few weeks of low temperatures during Winter {which just started on June 1st}.  That being said, we do a lot of outdoor cooking, no matter the weather, hence me sharing a delicious Apple Summer Salad with you.  We enjoy this salad not only with grilled meats, but as a side salad to many pasta dishes as well.  Pasta dishes are normally filling enough to be served on its own, but I do like to add a small side salad bowl to the meals as well.  Something refreshing and crunchy is always welcome with a saucy pasta.  However you decide to serve this salad, I do hope you enjoy this as much as my family does.
