Apple Summer Salad is a refreshing, delicious salad with Apple, Pineapple and more and drizzled with a light Poppy Seed dressing
I shared this delicious and very refreshing salad over at DIANE’S VINTAGE ZEST a few weeks ago and wanted to share it with you too.
Kids are especially very fond of this Apple Summer Salad as it is packed with not only Apples but with Pineapple as well.
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 has started on June 1st ).
That being said, we do a lot of outdoors cooking, no matter the weather. Especially over the weekends when we have lots of braaing (BBQ-ing) going on whilst watching a couple of Rugby games.
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 it’s own, but I do like to add a small side salad bowl to the meals as well. A something refreshing and crunchy is always welcome with a saucy pasta.
