Apple, Sorrel and Lettuce Salad Recipe

It seems to me that sorrel isn’t something very popular in cooking in this part of the world.

But just in case if you were looking for some recipe using it, here is one: fresh raw salad with sorrel, apple and romaine lettuce dressed with lemon juice and honey.

If dressing seems too sour for you, replace some juice with water and increase amount of honey, that should do the trick.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: wash apple, sorrel and lettuce leaves:

  3. Sprinkle a bit of lemon juice on top of the apple to prevent it from browning (I used quirky citrus spritzer to do that, but you can simply squeeze the juice by hands if you don’t have one):
