Everything you love about a Mojito except the rum! After having a few friends over for some mojitos, I was in the mood for salad the next day and had all the right ingredients -- better than the hair of the dog!

Interesting to try since I love mojitos. Did taste a lot like a mojito, but it was a bit bitter to me and lacked color. The apples were the best part of this, crunchy and mojito-flavored. Maybe using firm red and yellow apples (unpeeled to add some color), and combine the lime zest & juice and simple syrup together first before adding to the salad would help. (I omitted the lemon juice.) Read More

I literally tasted like a Mojito but I couldn't eat it as a big salad. There isn't a lot of different flavors to want to eat it as a meal. But it is a very nice refreshing side salad. Read More

I liked this salad quite a bit. I could not find fresh mint in the little market I went to so I infused some dry mint with the simple syrup that I zapped in the nuker. Fresh Cool and Yummy! Thank You:) Read More

Very fresh and clean tasting salad! I substituted agave nectar for the simple syrup and halved the amount of apples. It was very good. Read More

I did my own version: no simple syrup (too much sugar) and a regular salad dressing spice-packet with some olive oil water and lime juice. But the combination of dressing lettuce sour apples cucumber and fresh mint leaves was simple and very refreshing! If you're a fan of sour apples and mint you'll enjoy this salad. Read More

I made this salad for a family gathering and it was a huge hit. My husband isn't a fan but that just means more for me! I will be making this often this summer! Read More
