Grapple Salad - Modified Greek Salad


Grapple Salad

This is a delicious salad you’ll fall in love with after one try! I gave a twist to standard Greek salad, and whoa – I got this amazing creation as a gift for my heart and my taste buds. Now no more dieting and no more boring bland food for weight watchers - Grapple Salad is here!

It’s called Grapple because it’s my take on Greek salad with a twist of Apple, and it helps you grapple onto a Healthy Lifestyle!

Serves:  2-3
Preparation Time - 15 Mins

Ingredients
1 Cucumber
2 Tomatoes
1 Apple
1 small Red Capsicum
1 tbsp Del Monte Sliced Black Olives
1 tbsp Del Monte Extra Virgin Olive oil
5-6 pieces Del Monte Prunes
100 gm Paneer /Cottage cheese (You can use Feta also. Lactose intolerant people can use Tofu)

For the dressing-
1 tbsp Mustard sauce
1 1/2 tbsp Grape vinegar/ white wine vinegar
1 tsp Honey
Pinch of Sugar
Salt and Pepper to taste 

Method

  • Slice the cucumber in half and cut into small pieces.
  • Cut the Tomato in half. Take out the seeds and chop into big cubes. 1 tomato = 8 pieces
  • Cut the Apple in half and then cut out thin slices.
  • Cut all the prunes into half.
  • Cut the Paneer (or Feta or Tofu) into small cubes.
  • Take out 1 tbsp sliced Black Olives from the jar. Strain to remove any brine.
  • Slice the Capsicum thin.
  • Take a nonstick pan and heat it. Add 1 tsp of Olive oil.
  • Once the pan is hot, put in the Capsicum slices and toss for 2-3 mins only. Don’t make it too soft. Leave in fridge to cool down.
  • Dressing - Take a small bowl and whisk together the Olive oil, Vinegar, Mustard, Honey, Sugar, Salt and Pepper till it mixes well.
  • In a big bowl, add the Cucumber, Olives, Tomato, Prunes, Capsicum, and Apple slices.
  • Pour the dressing into the bowl and toss the salad lightly with 2 spoons to let the dressing coat the veggies evenly. Take care not to break the apples.
  • Put the salad into the salad plates and serve with cut pieces on Paneer on top. 

    Note: You can also serve it with 2 halved slices of bread toast to act as a dieter's complete meal.
