Spiralized Apple Salad

Rating: 4 stars 3
Let the spiralizer do all the work for you and then enjoy a fresh, crisp, crunchy apple salad with a mild vinaigrette dressing that comes together in minutes. You can use whatever apples you like just as long as they're fresh and have a firm texture. To keep the apples crisp, add the vinaigrette dressing right before serving.

Scrumptious Breakfast Salad

A fantastic salad I got from a Portuguese restaurant in Amsterdam. I've been eating it ever since. Garnish with grapes. Leftovers should keep for a day or so, but the fruits will make the lettuce wilt fast.
