Celery, apple, lemon and pine nut salad
This is a great light and refreshing salad that works a treat with richer foods like filo pastry or fried cheese saganaki.
1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley
2 celery stalks, thinkly sliced
1/3 cup small inner celery leaves
1 small red apple
1 1/2 tbs toasted pine nuts
2 tsp sliced preserved lemon rind
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp finely grated lemon zest
1 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs pure (thin) cream
Pinch of castor sugar
1. Mix all the dressing ingredients together and whisk or shake in a container until well combined. The dressing will go 'creamy'.
2. Combine all the salad ingredients and pour over and toss in the dressing. Try to get the apple dressed as soon as possible to prevent it turning brown.
3. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
