Lollo Rosso Apple Salad


















Salad is yummy and healthy to indulge in...you can have all fruits or all veggies or a mix and serve as a side  or you can add in some roast chicken meat in your salad and have it as a light lunch or dinner. It is healthy and it is nourishing too.  Eating a well toss salad is the most rewarding part of a meal :)  I made this Lollo Rosso Apple Salad  for my breakfast and gave some to Claire :)  Isn't she the blessed one ?  I gave her a loaf of my homemade Apricot & Raisins Bread too to eat with this salad and she loved them both...so she said :p



















I diced some green apples, tomatoes , and shred some red and green lollo rosso . Quartered the hard boiled eggs , make a japanese mayo with tomato ketchup dressing , garnished with toasted hazelnuts bits and sesame seed. Mmmmmm a  flavorful and delicious apple and veggie salad  to start the day !  I hope Claire enjoyed the salad as much as I DID !  I shall be making this again for my breakfast and this time without the eggs in it. I will add in more nuts and more fruits for more crunch :)


















































Can you see the loaf of bread in the background....yess that was the apricot and raisin bread I made and I gave a loaf to Claire ..... I am blessed to have her as my free taster   :)

  5. At first I didn't know what was lollo rosso, and now I guess it's the curly lettuce??

  6. Wendy... yup curly ...you can get them from Jusco .It's fringed and crinkled leaves are tinged deep red at their ends and will make a great colour addition to any salad :)
