I’m so sorry. I feel like I’ve been neglecting GreenLiteBites. I’ve been cooking and eating, I swear! I’ve even snapped a few shots of ideas that simply haven’t made it to the site yet.
My absence is partially do The 7-Year-Old’s Spring Break, which I’ve been blogging about on my travel blog. We’ve been doing something fun every day this week as a sort of staycation for him. I’ve also been distracted by GreenLiteBites redesign.
That’s right! We’re getting a new look soon! I’m excited and nervous about it. I’m hoping to make the site faster and easier to navigate. I’m even considering adding an open forum/message board area, so if you have any strong feelings either way about it, I’m all ears!
Moving on to the real reason I’m here …
I just enjoyed the simplest apple salad that will have you looking at a plain old apple in a whole new light.
I came up with this idea for The Laughing Cow last month but it’s so darn good I had to post here as well.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again — making something is always more satisfying than grabbing something, and that includes fruit. Sure, I could have just eaten the apple plain and it would have been fine, but this was a whole lot more fun, tasty and satisfying!
Here’s what I did today …
- 1/2 of a large apple (you could use a small)
- 1 Mini Babybel Sharp Original (or your favorite Mini Babybel!)
- 7g of chopped walnuts
- 1/2 tbsp (5g) honey
- Dash of cinnamon
- Dash of nutmeg
I totally forgot to take a photo before I started but I had these monstrous opal apples.
They were amazing! Crisp and sweet, but HUGE. Instead of using the whole thing I split one with this growing boy.
I mean, really, how old does he look there?! It’s FREAKING ME OUT.
Anyway, I cubed up my half and then cubed my Babybel,
and added it to the apple along with the walnuts.
Added a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg and drizzled the honey on top.
So simple but oh so tasty.
