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.

Serves : 6

1 Green Apple, cut into bite size pieces
1 cup Pineapple pieces
1/2 cup Celery Stalks, chopped
1 cup Cherry Tomatoes, halved
1 cup English Cucumber, chopped/diced
2 Handfuls Lettuce, torn
1 TB Caster Sugar
1 TB Apple Cider Vinegar
1 t Light Olive Oil
1/4 cup Low-Fat Sour Cream
1 t Poppy Seeds

1.) Toss together the Apple, Pineapple, Celery, Tomatoes, Cucumber and Lettuce in a large mixing bowl - transfer to a salad serving dish.
2.) Combine the Caster Sugar, Vinegar, Oil, Sour Cream and Poppy Seeds until creamy - let stand for 5 minutes - drizzle over the salad. Serve chilled.
