Apple Pear Cucumber Salad


BM # 70

Week 2, Day 2

Theme : Fruit based Recipes 

Whenever there is an excess of fruits, especially apples, it gets added to almost anything at home. I make chili with apples, I know a friend who make sambar with apples and though it sounds really weird, they do taste pretty decent. An unexpected bit of sweetness in the middle of a savory dish.

I add them on a regular basis to all my salads. My oft repeated salad has apples and tomatoes as the main components. Add one more veggie or a fruit, top with any salad dressing and you’re done! But this recipe is a little different from my usual take as I didn’t go for my standard mayo-mustard dressing. This one is the olive oil- lemon juice kind. The flavors all complemented each other well and the salad friendly kid was indeed happy!

Serves : 1

Ingredients :

  • 1 medium apple
  • 1 medium pear
  • 1/2 of a medium cucumber
  • 1/2 of a medium sweet onion


  • 2 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey (adjust according to taste)
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dill leaves (I didn’t have any)


  1. Prepare the dressing by mixing everything together.
  2. Slice the apples, pears and onions into thin slices. Cut the cucumber into circles.
  3. Toss with the dressing in a big bowl and serve. Done!
  4. I added about 1/2 teaspoon Kale chips for garnish, but it definitely wasn’t a good idea.
